Another interesting, barely a birdscape, at dawn.

These two Gull shots, along with the preceding "birdscape," were taken with the Sigma 180mm lens. A change from my usual Swarovski Scope.

Two shots of a female Red Breated Merganser about an hour after sunrise.

:lol: I think it's a great lens - very sharp! It's a bit slow in auto-focus, but not THAT slow. It's really a very strong macro lens, that can also serve some all purpose functions. So if you went out to shoot bugs and a hawk landed in the nearby tree - you can get a shot.
