Default ...at the lake with the E-300 & 70-300

I live within 5-miles of our Lake Arlington and recently have been going there for some wildlife photography.

These were done with the E-300 & 70-300 @ f/7.1 ISO 400

Hi Bb,

I love butterfly photos and these two are lovely.

I've often tried to see if I could get a sharp in focus image of one in flight. I've yet to succeed as they are a most unpredictable critter to follow.

...I should have thanked y'all for the comments, so now, thank you very much.

I really do like using the 70-300 on the old E-300, it feels good holding it.

I have the L1 which is close to the same, and I totally agree - it feels just right in your hands. Plus having the viewfinder on the far left means you don't mash your nose against the camera. If I could put a more modern sensor and software in it I'd never use any other DSLR. Maybe you just gotta be an old rangefinder guy...
