G3 with Spiratone 400mm, Bird on pole

I bought a "T" mount lens adapter for my G3 from Adorama and mounted my Spiratone 400mm F6.3 telephoto on the camera for this photo. It was shot at F8, 400mm, ASA800 on a cloudy day here is Davie, FL. The shot was hand held from about 40 feet away from the pole looking up. At 1/1600 SS it was barely possible to hold the camera still, I think there is some motion blur in the shot, or maybe I didn't focus it perfectly. Still on a tripod I think this lens will work out nicely. Next I need to try my Meade 1000mm F10 mirror (5.25" spotting telescope).
