Lovely shot - you'll need toplay some more with the Phoenix. Looks like you might have a good combination there. All's well that ends well, right?

I had the Samyang-Phoenix 100-500mm lens and never could get any as sharp as that one. Always too soft. Glad you are happy with the camera....Now no excuses not to post!! LOL

Very nice shot that belies the lens's budget reputation.

Well gee whiz you guys,
All those kind words really make me feel good. Now I'm encouraged to keep trying!:-)
Don, I was fairly close, I'd guess about 35- 40ft. I'm not sure about the exif info as to the focal length. This is the first time it recorded it for this lens. It always said focal length unknown before.:-?
I was on a pier that extends out into the shallows about 50ft so it's a pretty nice spot for a variety of birds, depending on when I'm there

Dawg… I will post more, I promise:G
thank you everyone!
