Default Another Fogo Island Feathered Friend!

Here is another Fogo Island duck capture that I want to share with you. As per my previously posted duck pics, this too was taken handheld using one of my Sony A500's and the Minolta 100-300mm APO (D) lens, at full zoom. (ISO 200, f/8, 1/320th sec)

I could not afford the Sony 70-300mm "G" lens at the time, so I picked this one up for a whopping $575 less! And to my eyes, the Minolta results look every bit as good! Stopped down, this lens is incredibly sharp, and I never tire of those famous "Minolta colours"!
