This is my contribution.Distance (estimated) 30–40 metres, the focus is some 10 centimeters behind the bird. :evil:It sat there for only some 30 seconds.

If you mean almost a great shot, I posted this one yesterday in the Sigma 24-135mm thread. The shadow from the lens hood spoiled what could have been.

This is great fun! Now I can post those almost shots instead of tossing them.

Here's one that falls into the bird almost category. I'm actually pretty proud of it, because at the time I was trying to get both birds of paradise in focus and was considering focus points vs. a super-slow shutter speed (had the old 80-200 K-mountKiron lens as stopped down as it would go) when up popped a bird of a different sort...

The wild side of Las Vegas

While it was technically fine, it just seemed boring to me. I tried to blur the background mountain a bit to try to make it more interesting, but don't think it helped much. It did capture the incredible color of the mountain, though.



I think this one reflects some camera shake - I was so shocked to actually have this butterfly in my viewfinder (it wasn't interested in posing at all).

tom, you're right.. 99.9% of the almosts get deleted here. i don't even have the original of the first post except for the jpg i posted.. and yes , it is fun.

went to the zoo today but haven't even looked at the results yet. i'm sure there will be many almosts in the folder..
