    Well, went out to try my camera's rain coat for the first time. Raining cats and dogs, forgot that I had adjusted +1.5 stops. Using my 80-200 with a TC, hard to change stuff in pouring rain...not only that, but had it at f8 not 2.8 - just brain dead. Just as I was leaving it stopped raining and I got these two shots with the just the 80-200 (both shot at 1/125, exp. comp still on:frown: )

    However if you've not seen an American Green-winged Teal pair in breeding condition then this might be of interest:

    And I thought this sparrow shot was pretty nice:

    Guess its time to go back to the CP:biggrin: , cancel the order for the D200:wink:

    We've all been there, Jeff....just have to learn from this type of experience and move forward. Too many little buttoms on our Nikon bodies.

    Frank:

    After 35K on the D70 you'd thunk I'd known better:)

    That's why there is a function in the menu that reminds you that your memory card is missing....it's for those of us who are too busy to always stay prepared.
