Here are some recent bird pictures. First is a Grey Heron, middle one is a Loon (All our $1 coins have a picture of a Loon, that's why we call em "LOONIES") and the last pic is a Bald Eagle shot today.
Loon with 18-135 at 135
Eagle with 70-300 at 300 (I took about 20 pics of this guy this was the only one that was any good all the rest were fuzzy... Typical nikon 70-300 g lens)
Been looking at lenses... Thinking about a longer lens in the 400-500mm range. As far as I can see the Nikon 80-400 vr would be the most versitile of the bunch for the type of photography I do. Small enough to pack around and can still be handheld at 400mm not to mention that it has good reviews on sharpness even wide open at 400mm.
