Wow, for some reason I thought that would have been a fixed lens. It looked pretty crisp.
So those crane shots, would they happen to be the whooping type?
I took a couple shots of some Killdeers (sp?) that are nesting in our back yard. They are the birds that fake a broken wing when something goes near their nest. But I need a longer lens. I'd like to get a little closer to the action without physically getting in close to the subject.
My roomate was literally being attacked by them when he was mowing the lawn the other day. Now that we know they are there, we're all trying to keep an eye out for them.
