a blue tit from yesterday with subtle backlighting just before the fog dropped ,i have included a note to point out where the actual focus point was .this i hope illustrates how the micro adjust really fine tunes the focussing .feeling very confident and comfortable with this nikon gear now .and its certainly producing the goodies .

  

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO VIEW LARGE ON BLACK .

  

iso 1600 | 350mm | -0.67ev | f 7.1 | 1/500th sec|

a early morning shot from yesterday ,had to take the wife in for a minor operation early yesterday ,so made the most of a glorious day while waiting to pick her up ,from early morning to early evening

I had to hike a long way to put myself in position to create this composition. The experience of trekking across the desert in 85 degree heat was unforgettable, but worth it in the long run. I created several nice compositions while here.

Shy but curious enough to approach my strategically placed iPhone which was playing a recording of their contact calls

The last full moon of Spring 2014. Taken from my backyard. Peace.

Taken with Canon 300D & Sigma 150-500mm Handheld......taken at Hopworthy Woods, Holsworthy, Devon.

  

another from earlier saturday ,again weather gray overcast ,dreary drizzle ,iso 1250 ,but this camera is doing what i bought it for ,low noise levels and birds in flight per excellence of todays three top shots (the best is yet to come ) i know the canon would not have got them due to the weather

a redshank on the rocks from fridays session ,i am really pleased with how sharp the d7000 and sigma150-500 is rendering pics ,and at the moment can't see a reason to spend big bucks on a upgrade

Mr. & Mrs. Baltimore Oriole enjoying the day while perched in the cherry tree.

love the light on this B/H gull ,what a difference a bit of sun makes to things .can't wait to get this camera/lens combo out in the summer .but till then it ain't doing bad ,not bad at all

  

DARE TO VIEW THIS PICTURE LARGE ON BLACK THE DEFINITION FROM THIS LENS ALONE IS WORTH IT

Talking to the sealion at Belfast Zoo.

Taken with Canon 300D & Sigma 150-500mm Handheld ....from a long way off (heavy crop)

This series of whitethroat images were shot handheld with the OS inadvertantly turned OFF because earlier in the day i removed the sigma to put on my 50mm 1.8 lens for macro and forgot to check switch when the sigma was put back for these shots( I read somewhere that the stabilizer circuit should be switched off before the removal of the lens from the body.........exactly how important that is i have no idea but i always do it !)

The last full moon of spring 2014 was what is called a "Honey Moon" because of it amber color. It occurred on Friday June 13 (Friday the 13th).

 

The amber colors are due to the scattering of longer wavelengths of light by dust and pollution in our atmosphere.

 

posted this for one of my contacts who requested that i post a crap shot ,this is about the worst one from the day just for him ROFPMSL
