I know that these shots are not the best, but I thought that the way that I got them was cool. I always carry the D2H with the 300 2.8 mounted on the front seat of my truck. Today, I went to the Post Office to mail a check to Crystall (for the 180 Tamron). On the way home, I saw this guy circling above a vacant lot. I whipped into a parking lot, and got out and fired several hand held shots (I took the QR plate from my 300 to mount on the 180).

As I said, they aren't all that good, but at least I got some shots. 8)

Thanks folks.

Steve, I had to do quite a bit of PP as the exposures were pretty bad against the extremely bright sky.

Thanks again,

Thanks again everyone.

Mike, my only decision every morning when I put the cam on the seat is whether or not to put only the 300 2.8 on it, or whether to add the 1.4TC. Glad I had the TC for these. 8)
