Steven the lens was the Kit 55-200 at around 175mm. shame I set the apeture a little too wide if I could have managed another stop his tail may have stayed in focus a bit more.

Thanks DocX I had been watching him for a few mins in the hedgerow when he finally decided to pose at the top for a few seconds. I tried to shoot him in the hedge but the light was so poor the shutterspeed was really slow and the dreaded camera shake took over even at ISO800

Very very nice Andy. I'm shooting a Fuji S9000 at the moment and have my eye on the Nikon D50 as an extra camera. Already have some nice Nikon lenses with my Nikon F3. Pitty, I rarely ever use it. I also have a 4x5 Graphic view with roll film backs and a 4x5 Crown Graphic (later model) as well. In all honesty, the digital rendering, especially in printing with the new photo injets really challenges the film in my humble opinion.



Again, excellent photo!! It was shot at 155 mm, 1/60th sec at f 5.3 aperture. Nice job for holding a camera steady at that high zoom. In 35mm equivalent it was 232mm which is super steadiness on your part at that shutter speed.
