I love thie 300mm f/2.8 lens. it weighs a ton but is workable with a monopod or tripod.
I do not know how to post more thatn one image here at a time so i am using 3 posts.

Hey Caryl,
Those are some nice shots!
I think the Wood Stork has got to be one of the ugliest birds next to the Vulture!:shock: the penguins are one of the funniest ant great white Egret is one of the most graceful!
Nice going.
GW

Thank you GW. I did not know what kind of a stork that was but I do not think it is that ugly. That penguin close up is not a beauty either.

Nice shots Caryl, the lens seems to be sharp as well but for a lady your size carrying a D300 and a ton lens your pretty strong:G

Very nice Caryl. 300 f2.8!! I'm impressed. I tried one of those beasts out. OK for a while, but 2 or 3 hours out hiking, and I'm done! I'll stick to an f/4 I think.....cheers...Don

Caryl,
I'm sorry, I misidentified the stork.:angry: It's not a wood stork. I'm not sure yet exactly what genus it is but, looks a lot like the white stork, but not quite. I'll let you know what I find out.:-)
