I see there are plenty of these threads but I had to go try this last month. Usually a wildlife guy but I can definitely see the pull of this type of photography.

1/400 sec
f8
iso 100
nifty 250
Large Crop

Clearly room for improvement and I would love any and all input, advice, and (more likely) criticism, as I will definitely be trying this again. I tried walking towards it but the dang thing seemed like it never got any closer;)

One day I was walking on the street and somebody handed me a camera. I looked at them and said, "This is not a Canon, what do I look like? A charity case?" So I took it, and THREW IT ON THE GROUND!

"I tried walking towards it but the dang thing seemed like it never got any closer." Where is the "foot zoom" crowd now?

Nice photo without using a lens that cost two arms and a leg.

Thanks, although I will be losing two arms, a leg, and one ear shortly I believe. My legs just can't go from 100-400 fast enough:D

Nice going anyway.
