One of the first pictures taken with a recently acquired 100-400L. The light wasn't good at all, but I did have to try the lens out :)

You did well, that one is really in the sticks! Looks almost like a cage.

:-) It's in a Wisteria in my backyard. Once it flowers wouldn't be able to see anything in there

Buahahahaha...another convert! :D Nicely done, there...these are one of my favorite, local sparrows. Great job shooting through the branches.

:-) the lens seems to focus really fast too, although I've only used it on white crowned sparrows and an abortive attempt to get a hummer (those things are pesky)

If you're trying to get any birds in the air, remember to switch the focus limiter to the longer distance, to avoid it racking focus all the way through...that will keep it speedier on grabbing focus in those situations.

Thanks. Will remember that. In the backyard, I expect to stick with the 70-200, but out in the open and for BIF, the 100-400 will be the primary weapon.

Heh...you may find that the 'pump' works great for the backyard, too :) I love using it at the feeders...
