I spotted these two while I was out and about this afternoon. D500...200-500...The first shot is without a TC and the rest are with a TC 1.4 II attached...Manual Mode w/Auto ISO...hand held. In the last shot the sun had gone behind some clouds so the light changed quite a bit. Jeff

Nice, I asked Santa for  200-500 for Christmas, after renting one for my vacation I love the reach that it gives.

Wow, that first one is a wall hanger.


Thanks, Dennis.

I like the third one best, mainly for the sky colour.  I know that blue blows out this time of year and struggle with it myself.  The sky in the third shot is much more natural.

Good series!

Great shots!!!!! That extender does well on that lens.

==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

Great pictures.  I found some yesterday, but not that close and nice.
