Here are some test shots with my new Tamron 200-500mm lens. All shots were hand held resting the lens on a blanket drapped over the half open window. I was using the truck as a blind at the refuge today. The lens was attached to my Nikon D80. I am encouraged by some of the results. I did catch a few minutes of sun for the Red tail shots.

This Am. Bittern is not the best shot, but, I have never seen one from this angle before. It's kind of spooky.

Just beautiful! I especially love the duck shaking his back foot. But all are wonderful; I wanted more!

Looks like you are off to a good start with the lens, Steve. I like the hawks...i'm partial to them:-) Those are prettygood being handheld.Iput together a window mount systemthat is ...hopefully....going to help a lot in lower light situations.

Thank you for the compliments all. I can tell this lens is going to take a little getting used too but I think the reach is going to come in handy.
Thanks again,
Steve
