Well, not at night..
I cannot wait another month!
Here it is terribly slow right before the migration...it will get busy soon!
So, more shots at the Zoo..pushing my limits again.

I dig the darker shots and it's good practice at lower shutter speeds and holding the canon 80d/sigma 150-600 combo.

The last one is "iffy" but I dig the fake "moon."

I wished the bird was a little lower on the branch!

You were certainly punching some limits of the camera there. Turned out rather nicely.

If these are hand held I'm impressed as i have the very same cam/lens set up and that's quite a weight.

All are stunningly great! My pick is no1 for the pose. What was your Aperture, Shutter speed and ISO?
Did you have the IS on?

Great set Marc, spot on camera control for such slow shutter speeds and high focal lengths.

1/40th, wow that's impressive. I like the first shot a lot, very grand.
