    I was out doing some backyard birding when I spotted these two characters standing in some pretty light.

    If you think birding is tough, try a 3 year old at close range with 400mm+. :eek:

    I have shot a 2 year old with that lens. One of the best shots I have taken.
    I have shot several portrait grab shots that have turned out well.
    So the lens is very versitile.
    But no one beleives me, except you now.


    Beautiful shots and great sunset light.

    Now where is that beautiful sunset pic:>)))

    These are great! I love the detail, the light, and the expression in the first image. I'm starting to think that I need a longer lens than my 105/2.5 for impromptu portraits like these.

    Its not the lens you think. I was using the 300/4 +1.4tc + tubes. The one thing I didn't shoot was the sunset itself. It would probably look like the other boring sunsets I have.

    Thanks Fred.

    Thank you. 180/2.8 works well.:wink:
