You're definitely showing when a 300mm is helpful. Wouldn't want to be very close to that guy. Like in the same state!

WOW very nice. I find it hard to get nice sharp pics like that with the 300mm unless lighting is absolutely perfect.

Great Pics. I agree with Patty --I wouldn't want to be close to that guy at all. Many years ago I canoed down the Loxahatchee River in Florida with my brother, and came within 20 feet of a huge gator sunning itself on the river bank. Scared me half to death. Even with a 300 mm lens, you were too close for my comfort zone!

Wow. Ok. If I was there, I'd be shooting the camera over my shoulder while running the other way. <grin>

Take care,
Glen

Very nice, very sharp, but too close for me even with a 300mm lens.

Really nice pictures, and I'm sure it was quite an experience too. Could you try to retake the pictures with a Sigma 10-20 so we can see the different angles of view?:-)

Sorry, I only have the Pentax 12- 24mm, that would still give me a comfortable distance.
