Thought I'd try the 180mm Nikor that has been collecting dust in my bag. This little guy kept chasing the other Hummers away from the feeder so I thought I'd get a shot. Comments welcome.

That's really nice. I have a hard time with this lens and focusing on moving targets - it hunts a lot. What's your secret?
Thanks Chris, the lens is a very sharp lens but is also a very slow lens if you use it in the auto focus mode. I mounted it on a tripod and prefocused it. I made a reflecting object using a spoon as a parabolic reflector into the remote sensor, I then sat back and used my Nikon remote and wa-la. Hope this helps.
