  1. 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.

    Those are nice, Martin....Although the last one gave me a bad case of the creepy crawlies! lol! :D 
  3. Nice ones, as usual, Martin....how long have you had that 300 f4.. ??....you are getting some really good results with it..!!!

    Regards..... M :) 
  4. Cool shots!! I like the dragonfly shots the best...well done!! :D  :D  :D 
  5. cool shots, that is a killer combo, and really like the bokeh from this combo and these shots show it!........ did you book your trip to Cranbrook yet. LOL

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Thanks Bryan, I like the Dragonflies the best also.

  9. 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 

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