Had the D800 out yesterday and took these (and many others) but one of the two really got my attention.

This first one is not my bathtub! These ducklings were really enjoying the turbulence at the bottom of this waterfall.

But more significantly, I had been reading that the low light capability of the D800 was potentially questionable. This image was captured in available light using the AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6 VR. Granted the VR helped a bunch, but we are still talking about an aperture of f/4. I didn't look at the ISO, but I don't think I had it set higher than 5000. I am very satisfied!
