I just love my 300 f4 af-s + 1.4 tc combo, its good for bugs to wildlife, I can be shooting bugs but if other things show up I can take advantage of the oppertunities.

I had that watched feeling when I was going after the Dragonflies.

You can tell she recognizes me although she was making a fuss because I was getting closer to the nest, she is at our bird feeder all the time.

Thanks Leigh, that was a nice big spider, it would have been nicer if I had got down to a lower angle but I am not dedicated enough to lay in the water.

Hi Mike, thanks for commenting I picked up that lens in the new year when it was on sale, I thought it would make a good hummer lens but I am finding at the close distances my 70-300ED is much better at getting a focus lock on moving hummers.

Thanks Keith, I haven't booked yet I may be able to get enough hummers in Sayward, the guy is setting up a single spout feeder this weekend, once they get used to that I should be able to get some nice ones. Of course no Black Chinned or Caliope's.

But if you want to go back I will go this time. :D

Very nice Martin, I especially like the bird with the focus dead on the eye through the branch framing. Beatiful.
