    thx Thomas

    this was vacation so D300 + 300/4 + TC or 80-400
    if I was at home I would have used the 300 2.8 + TC instead of the 300/4 but the 80-400 is my always my #1 zoo lens....
    The D3 doesn't get used for wildlife often but the Raptor Center (today) is one of the places I use it with the 80-400
