    She's back......

    Back in the same spot this morning, which she's obviously chosen as her preferred place to bed down.

    You can just about make out the bump of pedicles on her forehead.

    (JAYB - this was with the 300mm f4, plus a 1.4 teleconverter )

    Nice one Dom, the fur in her ears looks like cobwebs, good bit of kit that and the T/C does not harm it much.

    Yes, it's a great lens, though I have found it needs to be stopped down a stop or two for best effect, at least when the T/C is attached. This particular photo was shot at 1/250 at f9, whereas the f5.6 shots were just a little soft. I'm still learning about how best to use the lens, but I'm definitely liking it so far!

    I always found f8/f9 to be about right, although without the T/C it was not too bad wide open with quite effective bokeh, and quite a shallow d.o.f.

    Which brand of lens? Excellent shot.

    A little on the "Soft" side seems just fine with those shots. Nice to see the lack of Photoshop.

    Well done

    Thank you.

    It's a Nikon 300mm f4 AF-S lens, with a Kenko 1.4x Tele-Converter, so effectively making it a 420mm lens. It's attached to a Nikon D300.

    The photos were taken with the lens supported by a monopod, as it's a big old lump of glass to carry around!

    I have to confess....there was a bit of post-processing to crop and bring out the shadows

    Lack of heavily applied Photoshop then.
