    cardinal1250.

    ISO 1200 - Shot through window glass. Too cold to open window.

    Very cool, literally and figuratively. Did that bird forget to fly south for the winter? Nice shots, of the lens and trees.

    The Northern Cardinal is a year-round resident here. I think he's crazy.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Very nice images from a cool old lens. Is it difficult to shoot hand held? I have a Minolta MD 200 and I find hand held whilst manually focusing, especially when using focus magnification, it can be a challenge to keep still. I'm sure 300mm would be a bit harder.

    Yes. It's like focusing during an earthquake. I'm waiting for delivery of a 400mm lens. I'm sure that'll go on a tripod.

    Thanks for the kind words.
