300 Pro on a stroll

I took the 300mm F4 (and 1.4x TC) on a short evening walk, and was very impressed with the versatility and practicality moreso than ever before.  I carried it easily for a couple hours of walking around, and used it for small objects up close, and larger animals a little farther out.  The only issues I had were down to me not having the proper settings because I had just been shooting a different target previously, but even the sub-optimal shots are enough to make me happy, and when you can nail a picture, it's just amazing what you can get out of this lens.

The last shot is from later on in the weekend, where I was dropped off in a remote bay for a couple days of camping.  I love being able to take the new Pro lens camping, hiking, and even leave it strapped to my shoulder clip, without dragging me down much at all, even when hiking a few miles.
