    Three views. XT2, 100-400, Custom velvia. Converted in camera, cropped (5:4) and scaled down in Gimp. Looks like the sweet spot on this lens is f/5.6, no OIS. Got these at lunch time, park around Battle Creek, MI.

    Thanks. That's -1 sharpen in camera too! I did have it on a monopod to protect the camera mount. Velvia is nice on certain scenes. If a lens has a collar, I monopod it. I forget to check shutter speed but I know it kicked into electronic shutter, froze the wings. I just missed his long snout though....

    Wow, is right. I've seen several. Getting a picture is another story. Great job.
