    Gale :

    I can see that you're just going to be Trouble with a Capital "T" with this combination. Nice shot.

    Thank You Dave,
    Much appreciated.
    Can't believe I got it ok. It looks good here color wise etc.. But never know what is really seen. Dark, light all that stuff from folks that have gooood set-ups, so the critique really helps me alot here.

    Hugs

    The trial and frustration I have had the past year with birds in flight have been a nightmare with this lens on the D100.

  13. Great pictures!

    Makes me want to get that lens.

    Hi OZ,

    Thank you for the kind comments...

    Well If I can get it to goooo rippppp , anyone can :>)) Works great on the D200, prob D2X and D2H.. Not action on the D100. For me anyway. Regular shots on the D100 fine. :>))

    Hi Ann,

    The Virea Wetlands you hear us speak of all the time is a drive around for about 6 miles or so. Although you can get out, walk, set up gear and stay put. I was just driving around checking out if we had birdies and then to decide where to stay put for a bit.

    My gallery has a map of the wetlands.
    http://www.pbase.com/techwish/image/40726326

    So saw these and just tried to see what the lens and camera would do.
    Both taken from car. I just put it in park and shoot :>)))

    I was pleased on the flight shot.. Locked right on. Locked right on a Turn at quite a distance as well. Now have to try with the TC on it :>)))

    Boy we are always reaching so far........
     
  17. Nice images Gale!!!!
