Show Your Favorite Image Captured With Your 70-400mm G / G2

Try to make this a learning and sharing of techniques thread.

There have been a lot of threads about the Sony 70-400mm G and G2 lens. This happens to be one of my favorite lenses. I use the 70-400mm G for many different type of photography (i.e. BIF, Air Shows, Flowers, static, high speed action, distant and close-ups). The lens is one of the most versatile I use and I always use it hand held (never on a tripod).

It would be fun to see some of your favorites taken with the 70-400mm G / G2 (beginning or advanced - it doesn't matter). It would also be interesting to share, ask and answer questions about usage and techniques for types of photography with the 70-400mm G (I am only an enthusiast but will share what I have learned).

Over the past four years I have captured many thousands of images with this lens. Four years ago in February I received my 70-400mm (I remember it was on a Wednesday) and I was wondering what the heck I was going to use it for and that same afternoon I received a call from a friend asking me to go to Florida for a week to shoot BIF. I had never photographed BIF before but I said OK and we spent the next six days (10 hrs per day) in the preserves photographing BIF (I learned a few things about using my lens).

Below are some of my favorites from the 70-400mm G.
