After non-stop raining for about 2 weeks, we finally had some sunshine today, so I rushed out to test my recently acquired Nikkor 800mm F/5.6 ED AIS. I knew I would have a tough time handling such a long lens with manual focus and was prepared for a steep learning curve. These guys, sensing me coming with a long lens, stayed away and were well over 100 ft from me. Nothing spectacular, nothing to be proud of, but I'm glad I could play with this lens today. Still a long way to go.
