Whatta surprising evening!!!

  1. It was an ordinary walk for Lambros and me in our nearby lagoon...

    Surprise #1
    As we were minding our doggy business, two ducks took us by surprise when they flew away (not you Frank :wink: ) scared by our presence...

    Surprise #2
    As I grabbed my gun (80-400VR) and aimed at one of them... the lens DID NOT HUNT although in low light!!! It just accurately focused and although I was panning it kept that duck clear.

    Surprise #3
    As I was in AF-C, D100 DID NOT HESITATE but kept me in focus all the way, fast and accurate, and on the “right” spot it provided me with this…


    My surprise is that for a moment I thought I had a D2 cam with an AF-S lens… well I don’t (yet)
  2. Flew

    First, if it Flew, then it was me. Just re-incarnated in a different form. 8)

    Second, it looks like the dreaded birdie shooter disease has snagged another victim. :lol:

    Third, ain't it great when you nail one.... :wink:

    Nice shot. Now go get lots more. :D

  3. Well, it ain't easy over here Frank. When I see you guys going for bird shoting you look like you went for a coffee in between... wearing your nice jeans, shoes, shirts and all... Walking on man-made grass sometimes...!!!
    And the birds!!! :shock: , I bet they're ALL domesticated and sometimes you even hand-feed them... :?

    Here things are different :( First I have to wear high galoshes, long pants and sleaves, tons of mosquito repeler, hat (with a net is better)... have to cat-walk half mile or so... and that just to get close and see them flying away... :evil:

    Frank, IF THERE'S A SECRET I would very much like to know... :D
