    Half collared Kingfisher

    Howzit man, no probs it was a blast taking you around for the day. Haha yeah we where lucky with this one. Yeah the Tammy was a tough one if we where comparing to my Nikon I think the Nikon definitely took the cake and both of us where shooting very slow because of the terrible weather.

I was actually just testing the lens as I got it back from sigma and they supposedly replaced the optical stabilization and the focus limiter as I...
