    It started out with a little sun in the morning...

    original.
    NIKON D2X    ---    700mm    f/10.0    1/250s    ISO 400


    original.
    NIKON D2X    ---    700mm    f/10.0    1/160s    ISO 400


    And got cloud, cloudy and drizzly in the afternoon. These were shot at ISO 500 and 640...noise reduction on in camera and slow shutterspeeds so they aren't the greatest...by the way...think theses birds like spiders or what?

    Hi Greg

    All were with the 500 AFSII and the TC14EII...and I can guarantee that it ain't long enough sometimes.

    It does take pretty pictures thought!

    This combo is on my camera 95% of the time.
