Yummy!

These pictures are fantastic! How did you get so close?

I played a little with levels on one, what do you think?

I have scrolled up and down. Very little difference at least on my laptop. I will see that later on at home. Also my A300mm is a poor man's A*600mm. Just have to grit my teeth and get closer.

Wonderful pictures! The A300 might be manual focus and older, but it's still just an awesome lens, one of my favorites.

One thing I have found out from this lens is that if the background (like branches ) would have busy bokeh if they are 10-30 ft behind. If only it can be further behind , if I manage it, the bokeh should be more appealable. A lot of time this is not feasible when you are out in the field.

Hi Daniel,

Fantastic series!!! It must have been fascinating being able to get this close and observe this guy for a while.

These are great Daniel!
I don't know why you are complaining about the bokeh, I like it.

Harriet, Scott , GW

Thanks for dropping by and the positive comments. I have found out that if the branches are further away from the subject (like last image), they are less distracting(or less busy ).

Ok. At least you guys like it

Daniel
