Default [pic] Dusky Woodswallow (juvenile)

One of my very first images with the new Olympus DSLR set up! About a week after I finally took the plunge & splashed some cash on my shiny new toy, I headed down to Phillip Island for the weekend to test the new gear out. The 600mm equivalent focal length gave me the reach I hadn’t had the pleasure of experiencing, which opened up a whole new world of telephoto photography. This juvenile Dusky Woodswallow was one of my first subjects & was very cooperative, perching for a couple of minutes while I familiarised myself with manual focusing at such long focal lengths.

Phillip Island, Victoria, Australia
Olympus E620
Zuiko 70-300mm lens

Nice shot Adam. Getting the most out of your new gear.
Lots of positive comments here on the 70-300 and lots of shots with it. Useful lens for the price. Looks like one of these day I'm going to have to upgrade my camera.

Couldn't agree more. I've used this lens for a good 7 months and love it - excellent value for money. Only last week I upgraded to the 50-200mm SWD & EC-14 teleconverter
