Exactly. I was about 20m from her. Quite busy lately, so no time to try the fieldscope out in the field. I have confidence that it will bring rounds and rounds of joy from the features that the fieldscope embraces. Thus far, the problems are with spotting the object to be shot and reducing the effect of daylight on the LCD monitor of the DC. Given time, they definitely can be resolved.

By the way, your BIF shots are just terrific. Keep up with the good work. I am waiting to beexpandedmy horizon with thephotos you posted here.

Hi Peter, "rig" basically means the equipment that you are using. Cheers

Very nice. I don't know if I'd have the patience that must be involved setting up and trying to locate a subject in this manner. The birds must have to be still for a few moments before shooting like this? You're getting great results. Cheers...Don

The reach you can get compensates for everything. Often time, you can beat a distance safe for the bird to react and that provides the chance for doing the capture.

Often time, a big gun may notguaranteeaccess to a distance that can enablea full-frame shot to be possible forthe small birdin the wild.

After all, digiscoping is another way to shoot. Fun though despite the fact that focusing and flexibility are terribly blunt compared to DSLR's.
