I am pretty new to this and don't have your answer, hopefully somebody with more knowledge can answer your question. :-)

Thank you Neil, I appreciate the compliments! The2nd Downy was approx 15yards away and yes it was with the 80-400mm Nikkor VR. :G
15 yards is 45 feet. I have used my 100-400L (on 10D) and taken shots of Downy at around 6-7 feet and I still don't fill the frame.

Even at 15 feet, with 400mm, a downy will not fill more than 25-30% of the frame.
