WOW, some great photos have been posted recently.

I ended up purchasing a Nikkor 500mm f 5.6 pf lens. It turned up yesterday.

So far I'm pleased with the lens, although having a few issues with the image stabilisation. I have tried both Normal and Sport mode, but I'm still getting a few images with movement in them. It wasn't an issue with the 200-500mm. More practice I guess.

It was overcast this evening after work when I visited the small reserve at the end of our street. Also there were not too many birds around late in the day.

A few snaps from this evening using a D500 with 500mm f 5.6 pf lens
