Pretty rainy today, but just had to get out. So, put on my rain gear and a rain coat for the camera. Still getting the hang of the D200, these with the 300 & tc1.4 either ISO 800 or 1250. BH -Got fairly close in the rain, lots of these guys flying around today: Wood Duck, Mom and duckling Rock Dove (Feral Pigeon, I think), but how pretty: A Tree of Swallows - I just liked this image:smile: Shooting with a new camera in a rain protector is a very interesting experience. But here in Oregon you miss way too many opportunities if you don't use one. Also beside the Wood Ducks (ISO 400), everything else was either 800 or 1250.
