K100D 70-300mm Di LD



I put the Tamron in manual focus just to see if I could get a sharp image myself when this hummingbird moth flew into the frame. I got excited and missed focus confirmation, so this has quite a bit of USM.

Wow! That first shot is so sharp. The beak would tear you open... and the detail in the feathers, is wonderful.

He was only a few feet away. They won't let you get too close them, but if you're stationary they will come in pretty close to you. Thanks Dal.

Both are good shots, that first one at 300mm is so sharp.

Looks like it was a good day. Great angle to show off the cap of the Chipping sparrow - I don't think I have seen one photographed from behind before - and a very nice shot it is, too.

I have had two different Hummingbird moths in my yard - each only once; neither was a clear-wing, and neither stuck around long enough to be photographed.
