"Backyard activity"


US
          

Was having some issues with my kit yesterday. So took some test shots after reformatting my CF card. Both shots - D200, 300 f/4, tc 14/e, ISO 400. Minor CS2 adjust and Topaz Denoise. About 15 feet away - on Gitzo 2531, Markins Q10.

Butterfly on our butterfly bush - quiet action today. Cropped about 40%.



Dragon Fly. Cropped about 60%

Gentlemen

Thank you all for the encouraging comments. The more I use the 300 f/4 AF-S, the more I realize what a great lens this is...even on an "ancient" D200.
