Some of you might know how it is buying a lens off e-bay, no real return policy, like buying a pig in a poke :)
For a while I was disappointed with the Minolta 400 APO, it just wasn't as sharp as the 70-400G2; well it is a 1995 lens but I wanted more from it.
So some Sun, some MFA, some aperture and I think it has potential.
400mm usually with a TC is my favorite combo in EOS and the ancient Minolta was the only way to get there with the Sony.

Love the detail on this one. I assume it's either an American Crow or a North-western Crow, but I wouldn't know how to tell the difference. Someone once told me that the North-western Crow is identical to American Crow, except that the plumage is wet! :D

Picture editing is OK. CC always welcome.

It's ever so cute and a great shot. But tough conditions for birds. Keep your feeders filled!

Levina I go through 400 to 600 lbs a winter of black oil seed plus suet of which we make our selves, plus mixed seed, plus Nyjer seed for the finches.. O and then theres the deer, I never fed deer until one year back a while ago,... they all but waisted away to nothing right in my yard. So their here anyway so I feed them... 50 lbs every two weeks or so. seems a full time job.
I think I have a feeding problem lol I do need a part time job to cover the cost lol
