Today I had the opportunity to go out to the Sac. Nation Wildlife Refuge and shoot with my new camera and lens.* It was a very overcast day and the light was not good for wildlife pictures.* But, that didn't stop me.* Here are some of the shots that weren't too bad.* I still have a lot to learn about this new set-up.* But, I am having a blast with the learning curve.*** *All the best,* Steve

Great shots and variety! You did well with the low lighting conditions.... were these hand held or did you use a tripod?

Nicely done, I've heard good things about that lens. Looks like it will serve you well.

Are you sure that last raptor is a red-tail? It does have one, but that looks very different than the red-tails we have on the east coast of the US. The one's we have have a lot more white on the breast with a belly-band (white visible above and below it.)

I just have to say that is one of the weirdest red-tails I've ever seen. I already knew I wanted to get to that coast to photograph, now I have another reason!
