I've been using the 80-200 for birding, but it's a little short for the job, even with the Kenko 1.4x teleconverter.
I left it off today, since I was shooting shorebirds, but they stayed out of range, and I only managed to catch one
shot of a bird in flight.

I was about to leave when I spotted some mammals... a brother and sister enjoying nature. The 80-200
allowed me to take some candids from a respectable distance without disturbing them.

As a sidenote, there was a little kid intently watching the interplay between the two siblings. He was with
his grandpa, and clearly envied their companionship. I think he felt a little sad that his parents hadn't given
him a little brother or sister to play with.

Thanks, Gordon! I applied a "glamorizing" effect to this series of pictures to give them a romantic feel.
It's a lot different than normal Nikon colors. Here's a shot without the effect, for comparison purposes.
Which treatment do you like better?

I have always been a big fan of vivid colors and used to shoot Vervia in my film days. These are fun images and I like the "glamourizing effect.
