It's a crowded wildlife-urban interface from the marsh, to the river, the railroad, the 6 lane 101 freeway, and a housing development next to the freeway. No wonder the birds were hiding.

Beautiful Tim! Lovely set..
Nice and sharp.. Manual focus?

Looks like your tinkering is keeping Nifty in the game! :-D

That one looks like an outrigger (#14071 top)

Nifty seems to work better in cool temperatures, but "better" is a relative term. It was a mix of autofocus and manual focus.

Yes, that is an outrigger canoe. They are out there frequently, usually with a crew of 6. They also compete against other canoe clubs in northern California.

I have better shots of outrigger, but they were taken with "Not So Nifty" lenses, so I can't post them here, but I posted one in the Sony lounge thread.
