took the beast and a 1.4x out to see how they worked together.

they work well together


looks like a nice place to sit


you better not


i'm going too


these are about the ugliest duck around and hard to shoot


an almost incoming. just finding them in the VF is hard enough..


this house is at least a mile away.


a macro?? closest i can focus.. about 30' or 10meters.

darn, now that's reach! how far were the gulls from you? how much was an apparently decent 700mm lense like yours?

**didnt you notice that weird effect in the first picture where it looks like the birds are surrounded by some dark aura or something

Hi Roy,

How did you shoot these? -- I assume not handheld -- I find myself seriously considering a gimbal + monopod setup for the heavier glass. -- Regardless, I'm impressed, not only with the lens combo, but also the technique.

The Coot and the resting Pelicans are my favorites.

I am impressed, I can't do moving things with mine unless I am using a tropod.

would you mind if next time you go out shooting with the 700mm, could you take some shots of without the lense aswell, just to truly get a feel for how far this thing goes?

All good shots Roy, but the first one is brilliant.

First one is outstanding. Your ugly duck isn't a duck, it's a coot, a ducklike swimmer. They are so funny to watch swimming, they always look awkward to me, and (as usual with black birds) I haven't managed to get a decent picture of one.
