since he cant make the group shoot.. Shot with my D2H and either the 300 f4 with 1.4x, a 500 f4 with 1.4x, or a 200-400 vr with 1.4x. Went out with Steve S and he was kind enough to let me use whichever long lens he wasnt using at the time. here's my rat with wings, I couldnt get the shrimp with hook away and he did in fact swallow it. Seems fishermen, in general, are sloppy. Doubt this guy will live long. It was overcast and drizzly at this time: NIKON D2H    ---    700mm    f/5.6    1/640s    ISO 500 then a pleasant surprise, some Frigate Birds, shot at 700mm at 1/250th of a second. Getting my long lens technique down, but shoulda pushed iso up to at least 400, it was only 320: NIKON D2H    ---    420mm    f/6.3    1/250s    ISO 320 a merganser at 700mm, 500iso: NIKON D2H    ---    700mm    f/5.6    1/750s    ISO 500 NIKON D2H    ---    700mm    f/5.6    1/640s    ISO 500 hard to track these moving things in such a small field of view. Now to osprey. They were, how should I put it, ALL OVER THE PLACE! We stayed on the tree high observation deck today as we were carrying big rigs. Looking out on the lagoon, at times there were 7-8 osprey fishing at a time. Then, they'd come by us with fish or empty handed. I need to use a different focus setting. I used the second one down from the top, and will start to use the second from the bottom. Also, will stop down more.: And we had some Rosies: NIKON D2H    ---    700mm    f/6.3    1/2500s    ISO 400 Didnt get a shot off on the immature baldie that flew by us on the way to the point. I think he's waiting for you. Look forward to your visit. Will keep working on places to take you. Stay warm buddy!
