Wow! Great photo, Jack. We rarely (never) see Moose here...but lots of Mongoose :)

I finally took the time to microadjust my 300mm 2.8 lens using the trusty yardstick/fluorescent tape method...here's a couple 800 px crops





As well as the litter collecting abilities of a GBH...gotta love the M&M candies.

Thanks all!

Cool Moa!  The roosters always seem to have the brightest colors.  I've seen some 'imports' on farms before, apparently a larger business than I would have thought.

Nice Tern, Click.  Now the terning puns....

Don Haines, really cool reflection in the water.  I need to take the SX50 out for a spin instead of lugging one of the gargantuan twins along.  Do you use a bag/housing or just say it's cheap enough to replace?

Believe it or not Northstar, I'm about 15 minutes east of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, not exactly in the wild but you know how it is with moose and deer, a little bush and they'll venture there.  I had a moose looking in my bedroom window once (I live on 3 acres).  :)  Usually just mamas and young ones, not trophies.

It's kind of cool when the focus shifts for a bit away from birds especially when the birds just aren't showing up!  That's about the only time I wished I had less lens.

Something seems off. Try doing AFMA using the 5% target from this article.
http://regex.info/blog/photo-tech/focus-chart

I printed on A4 and A3 for the wider and longer lengths. This is before I bought FoCal. I believe ML has AFMA tool built into it but I do not have the latest build. Waiting for the Alpha-4 to be released. They seem to be taking their time. One year and counting...

Yup. Lovely duck portraits.

Now you need to get a sequence of Harry Fischer actually fishing. Or is it that he fishes and then waddles up to your door and demands his picture be taken?
