Is it ever sunny over there? It seems like all of your photo's are taken on gloomy dull light days and that is so challenging with any F5.6 lens... let alone trying to get "stop action" on a moving bird with a F5.6 lens in low/flat light.

The time here in Hong Kong is spring. Overcast most of the time, so much pushing in ISO to make the shutter speed at around 320 to 400 of a second for freezing the action. I am now using D200 and the noiseat ISO 600 and above is obvious.

The other factor that made freezing difficult is the location where the egrets were found: a river by the side of some highrise buildings with lots of tall trees lying on both sides of the bank. Much sunshine was blocked by the building and those that could pass throughwas trappedby the foliage. More favourable shooting time was from 10 am to 4 pm when the sunisstill vertically up.

f5.6 is really a problem in gloomy environment. Nikkor 80-400works better than Tokina 400 when f5.6 is used for two reasons:faster focusing and better colour renditioning.

Thanksfor viewing and giving comments.
