I was hiking down river, crossed one creek & diverted around another & the twisted mangled mess of trees by the river's edge was too much & decided to head back & stumbled on this fellow I was trying to get back to where I know there is a 100 nest Great Blue Heron rookery .... never got there. I had the Sigmonster with a 2x converter attached & was surprised I was able to set the tripod up & find him .... having the flexiblility of zooming back to 600mm helps find the subject ... especially when I am shooting through lots of trees, twigs & brush. I was also able to shoot some great video too .... BUT ..... I am right now using my very limited laptop because my main system motherboard died 3 days ago So, my color & processing is very sub par on this one .... let me know how I did I just had to see if I could do this from my laptop ..... also had to update my CS3 to CS5 ..... haven't had the need for a while
Cheers
