My latest effort with the Panny 100-300 mounted on E-M1

Absolutely loving this lens!! Rock solid focus tracking

Beauties! How far was that raptor from the camera?  How much cropping?

We had our first butterfly of the season here last week.  A Mourning Cloak.  It looked quite rough but stopped in a clump of weeds next to the snow long enough for a quick pic with the 100-300.

Amazing to see this before all the snow had disappeared.

I really like that lens too.  All I have to do is learn how to use it better!   It's on the GH2 now but I'm toying with the idea of upgrading to a GH4 (!!!) to give myself some more advantage in capturing BiF!  We'll wait until there is more field experience with the new focusing capability before I make the jump, though.

Thanks for sharing your images.
