    Interesting set. The one youngster seems to be a newborn, #5? How close were you able to get?

    Sorry for late reply. The lens was the Sony 70-200 f4 e mount lens

    Well the 70-200 f4 is not ideal. Some of the seals were really close but that new born was further away and I have cropped the image in post processing. I use a Sony a6000 so effectively the longest focal length I have is 350mm when ideally I would like closer to 500mm in 35mm terms for wildlife. I see they are saying that the a6300 will work with A mount and Canon EF lenses with adaptor. The US price of $999.00 I could probably live with but the UK price of £999.00 is in my opinion slightly too much.
