Took a week off and went exploring Texas with a rental lens and my new D800. First shot is the D800 with the Sigma 150-500mm in heavy fog. My first Crested Caracara despite living in Florida for 13 years!

Wondering if I'm shooting at too low an f-stop for the BIFs (Harrier eye Ok but the rest looks soft).

As always, comments and feedback appreciated!
