I have for months been trying to get a picture of Cedar waxwings that have been passing by outside my deck and they always catch me when I don't have the camera ready to go, but finally last week i got a few shot of them, these are mostly with the 500mm AF-S, some have the TC14EII attached and one is with the Sigma 800, all with the D2X. Since you have to crop a lot it is hard to get a stable platform fo rthis lens combination. The combination of the D2X and the long lenses sure are a challenge to hold still enough. Here are some of the better shots, rest are on www.pbase.com/andreasb/birds View attachment 13290 View attachment 13291 View attachment 13292 View attachment 13293 View attachment 13294 This one with the Sigma 800 View attachment 13295 A big Thanks to Paul Frye and Rory Hill for advice on how to get good shots with the 500mm Af-s, I was getting a bit down for a while there ... Feedback appreciated!
