Trying out my new D800 with 900mm "macro" !

Most of the migrating birds seem to have allready gone away !

...but there are still a few bugs to try my new toy !

I shot these two with the 300mm f/2.8 VR II + TC20-E III in DX format (= 900mm in 35mm equivalent) ! The dragons were 9.2 feet (2.80m.) away !

I set the camera to "manual" and "auto ISO" ! I did not crop anything: these are 100%, only reduced for the Web !

For the moment, I'm quite happy with the results......
