first birding with DA* 300 yields several firsts...
3 months ago

The first time out with this lens was also the first time I ever caught a river otter in a picture (just barely):

and the first time I ever got this clear a view of the colors on least sandpipers:

the first time I've ever found a road blocked by a herd of barn swallows...

first BIF of a swallow that's sharp (100% crop):

first decent BIF of a black-necked stilt:

and this is nothing special, but it's still the first time I've ever got such an unobstructed view of a western kingbird.

All of these shots are plenty cropped.
