Trying the 800/5.6 again. (4 imgs)

Hi folks,

I figured I would give the K-3 + Nikon 800mm f/5.6 lens another try. This time I used a 100mm extension tube and shot at f/8. The extension tube allowed me to just have to crop a small amount off the right side of Images #1 and #2. I think the subject distance was about 18 feet whereas without the extension tube it would have been at least 28 feet.

At f/8 I was not able to do catch-in-focusing so I just shot in manual. I had an extended reach wired remote (I was sitting about 15 feet from the camera) and when the hummer came in I just pressed the shutter and held it down. I was in Continuous Shooting LO.

I hope you like these.
