Default Another two with the 300mm and the 1.4TC

Took these shots today of the first two Cranes that I have seen so far this Spring, although they didn't cooperate all that well since they took off as soon as they saw me.

K10D, 1000 sec @ f/5.6


K10D, 750 sec @ f/5.6

Nicely done! Which 300mm lens were you using - as I recall, you have a couple of them? Whichever one you were using, it looks like it's working out well.

Pretty nice shots Tom, even if they didn't cooperate!

Nice shots! You did the best with what they gave you to photograph.

Look good! Maybe once the weather's warmer they'll stick around a little longer.

Thanks, it is the Sigma 300mm 2.8 EX APO with a Sigma 1.4x TC, which is quite a handful with BIF shots.

Wondered if you'd used the 2.8 - there's no way I could manage such a lens at all, much less with a BIF. I'm doubly impressed!

These are great shots, especially hand-held with such a big bulky lens. We almost never see Sandhill Cranes in this area; they look like huge, impressive birds.
