Hi All,

This guy flew over me today.

1/1000 at 5.6, ISO 200, D300, 18-200mm Vr at 200mm (300mm equivalent)

The first is the orignal image shot at 200mm (300mm equiv).

The second image is an 8x10 crop of the hawk in the original image.

I am getting to like and rely/depend on my D300:

Your comments are very welcome.

Nicholas

Nice shot Nick. How good did the AF lock onto the bird?

Thanks for your responses.

I shot single point AF, center, locked immediately and got about 6 shots as he flew over, all in focus.

I always shoot RAW, and this week shoot in 14-bit.

Regards,

Nicholas
