    This is a picture of a Black Crown Night Heron from my backyard using my film camera and a 500mm lens with a 2x teleconverter. Needless to say with that and the scan it lacks sharpness. This is one of only a few birds that have natural red eyes.

    dude, thats like a thousand millimeter! im still getting over that. i've been wanting to get a mirror lens to do that with mine (i have a 3x teleconverter, but it is kind of low qualilty, so im not sure if i like it yet). What shutter speed/aperture/ISO was your camera set at?

    It's pretty damn sharp considering you used a 1000m equivalent lenses! The slightest movement would have meant we'd have seen the Black Crown Night Heron through the eyes of barney gumble!

    It's a really nice shot!
