Finally getting some of my D200 focus issues, all mine :redface: , back in focus, just wish we had some decent light. Jim and I went up to the Skagit River and Flats on Friday, not the worst day we have had, but far from grand. Left the 1.4 TC off due to the bad light and did what we could. All three of these shots can only be called "long distance", so far that the crops are maybe 15-20% of the original. Nice to have the added resolution to do this. Adult Bald Eagle: An "Almost" Adult Bald Eagle: Northern Harrier, flying low: The Harrier was no more than 2-3 feet off the ground. The tough part here is getting used to the bird being less than the size of a focus reticle, and keeping both I and the camera, stable and steady both on the tripod and the bird. A few more things to try, but I think I'm getting closer. I like the first one the best.
