Dinosaurs return to the backyard
2 months ago

Hi,

Several months ago someone described Crested Barbets posted on the forum as looking like dinosaurs. Here's a few shots of them taken for the first time on the 600mm f/4D ED-IF AF-S II .

I wanted to checkout the DOF when shooting subjects near the minimum focusing distance using f8 therefore the shutter speed is a slow 1/60th sec which turned out okay for the Crested Barbets.

Below the Crested Barbets are a few shots of the Cape Robbins taken at the same spot but slightly closer also using the 600mm.

All shots were taken using the MC-15 shutter cord.

C & C are welcome.

Thanks,

Adrian
