Hi,

Thanks for the comments. I am using a niko D500 with 300mm prime lens (Af-S Nikkor 300mm 1:4e PF ED VR). Prime make a huge difference. I have an AF-S Teleconverter TC-14E III that gives me that extra reach to 400mm. I don't regret getting it.

I have 2 primes (50mm, and a 90mm macro) and love the quality. But I haven't made the leap into prime lenses for telephoto, I like the versatility of a good zoom lens for wildlife, and the price of the big prime lenses makes me hesitate. I know they're awesome, but it's a lot of money.

I'm surprised that you can get so close with 400mm! I use a Tamron 70-300mm, and even on a crop sensor Canon I still find it a bit short for shooting small birds up in the trees.

I sneak up on them. Seriously though, I find tons of opportunities when the birds come down to me and are at my height give or take 4 feet. The Blue-gray Gnatcatcher for example was at about 5-6 feet off the ground and only 3-4 feet horizontal distance. The Townsend's Solitaire was up about 9-12 feet and at 10 or more feet away. That one was the stretch.

Amazing. I love those warblers! You even make them look as if they have emotions!

Another wonderful series of photos Tindo, thanks for sharing! I had no idea that Northern gannets were also found on your site of the Atlantic. I 'visited' (boat tour around a rocky island they nest on) a large colony off the coast of Edinburgh 4 years ago, and it was an amazing sight. I was hoping to go again this year, but it didn't work out.
