I had the opportunity of meeting a couple of NikonCafe members (Bill Dewey & Jim Thiel) at Juanita Park along with another fellow photographer (Richard). This was the first time I met them and let me tell you, they are both wonderful people and a pleasure to shoot with. Bill graciously offered me a chance to shoot with his Sigma 500 w/ 1.4 Tele. I couldn't pass up the opportunity as I have never shot anything more than 200mm before. I accepted and got some shots of the green heron with the big gun. I was shocked when I looked through the D70 viewfinder. This was really a eye-opening experience for me. Thank you to Bill, Jim, & Richard for a wonderful time at the park. I really enjoyed it even though I had to leave early. Here are some shots that I got from that combo. These might not be upto most picture posted here but I am striving to improve and am slowly building my Nikon arsenal. Shot with the D70 w/ Sigma 500 f4.5 (?) + 1.4 Teleconverter. (I think) Please feel free to comment.
