    28-300VR on D300 issue

    I have a Sigma 180 f/3.5 Macro and recently acquired the Nikon 28-300VR. I put'em both on the table to compare the close focusing and difference in focal lengths between 180 and 300mm on my D300. I thought I was losing my mind. the image through the view finder is vastly different than I...

    Nice shots Alex! Your Least Tern is actually a Sandwich Tern though. ;-)

    what kind of bird is this?

    Looks to me like a Northern Goshawk, much too gray and the bold yet incomplete supercilium and mottled white specks along the mantle and scapulars leads me to believe this is a younger bird.

    Perhaps a red knot?

    It's definitely a juvie Spotted Sandpiper. Juvie because buffy edges on the primaries. Spotted has yellowish green legs, Red Knot generally gray, and Red Knot is more heavy bodied and doesn't have that brown barred coloration on the tertials and scapulars, they are more gray. Stilt 'pipers...

    Nikon 80-400mm blurrrr

    When I had mine I was quite happy with it, ESPECIALLY after I turned the VR off. Might be fine at real low shutter speeds but I found my hand holding ability was enough, particularly at 1/250 or better and found that the VR seemed to have an adverse effect at times.

    The Sigma 180 Macro picture thread

    Oh yeah this lens is rockin'!!! Just picked it up a month ago from the cafe and can't put it down! It's listed as 18" close focus but it's more like at least 12" as far as I can see and it's absolutely amazing! Stink Bug Palmetto Planthopper Robber Fly Tussock Moth

    Hey Everybirdy, Haven't been able to get out and bird regularly, with moving into new place and work. Fortunately at work, I can walk right outside the door for some easy target practice now and then! Osprey Eurasian Collared Dove Downy Woodpecker

    XMP Question

    Thanks Kiwi. Think I'm drifting away from CS into NX2 since neither will accept the others NEF adjustments, but I have been known to jump back and forth!

    XMP Question

    So if I delete the XMP sidecar, I'll lose all exif info on that image? Isn't there a way to set it to be embedded without converting to DNG?

    5 Skimmers Skimming...

    Hey Everybirdy, OK, so it's really only 2 different birds. I will always stop to pop a few when i see these guys around. fun to watch and even more fun to try and capture! I cropped it this way for a powerpoint slide for my wife.

    Good mix for the day

    Thanks everyone! LOL No John, still the same ol' 300 f/4 with 1.4 Tc. The hawks i cropped a little as that's the only clear sight into the nest, so trimmed out the branches. To be fair I wasn't more than 30-40 feet away though on tripod with a beamer.

    First decent bird photo - What is this thing?

    This is actually a Loggerhead Shrike, much wider black band across the eye than Northern. Northern Shrike would be an VERY good rare bird for Miss., not sure there's ever been one seen there, they are typically true to their namesake all year round.

    Might have to wait til next season, they're thinning out pretty fast! Nice going Louie!

    Blue-headed Vireo with meal

    Hey Everybirdy, Came across a Blue-headed Vireo today. No sooner did i run to my car to get my tripod and flash and come back to find he nabbed a Polyphemus Moth for an early lunch. He was very accommodating for a trio of us enjoying the meal right along with him. A little on the...

    How to find nests

    Generally speaking, local hawks (i.e., Red-shouldered, Red-tailed, Cooper's) will tend to nest not too far from good feeding. For the most part they can be rather secretive but on occassion you might find one in the oddest of places. When you see red-shouldered or Red-tailed perched patiently...

    Pelican Portraits

    Hey Everybirdy, Had a close encounter with many Brown Pelicans the other day, of all ages. They were quite docile so i took advantage of having the 300 and 1.4 tc on a tripod so I let'er rip. OK, so the last two aren't pelicans but.....
