200-400 VR Rewards

I've been struggling to get the hang of this lens recently. Mostly handling its weight hand held rather than on a monopod, because its just not free enough for my liking on a monopod. It's a hard lens to manage but I am finding with some concentration and hard work it can really be rewarding. For the dozens of images I am dumping, every so often I get a gem like this one. For such a heavy long lens I managed to pull off a slow shutter speed hand held, thank goodness for VR.

This is one of my recent shots when photographing birds of prey. This is an Australian Barking Owl. I just cant get over how brightly yellow its eyes are.


Exposure: 1/50th @ f/4
EV: -2/3
ISO: 200
Focal Length: 340mm
Lens: 200-400mm
Camera: D2Xs
