I recommend that everyone read the article. here is the link again, and again, thank you Levina

https://www.outdoorpho​tographer.com ...-lens-tips-and-techniques (external link)

This is a follow up post. I went yesterday to a different location with the intention of getting pictures of wild turkeys. They didnt show up, but they sent the ground squirrels to take their place in the park. I took pictures of them. I altered my method by holding the lens underneath. I changed the multiple frame method from high speed to normal. With the AI servo, better support, and less vibrations from the repeated exposures, I got much sharper results, even with relatively low shutter speeds (I pushed the envelope on purpose). I would not recommend 1/80 for a 600mm lens, but I did get some sharp pictures at that setting.

For those interested in seeing some images are posted in the wildlife forum in the thread Rodents of Unusual Size, or, you can go to my smugmug page to see them.

It's really good to hear that this technique works so well for you, Larry.

Thanks very much everyone ! :-)
This was one of my favourite shots of the summer. They are an endangered bird here in Canada, but a few nest in the provincial park near me. I had been out trying to get pictures of one, with no luck. As I was dejectedly walking back to my truck, this little guy landed right beside the walking bridge, as if to say....."OK, you can take my damn picture, you big baby ! " :-P
