More Robins Update

Ok, so i spent my lunch stalking the front of the shed. I set my 20D up with my 70-200 and 2x Tele on my Slik Pro 700DX tripod

I wasn't very successful using manual focus as the birds came in different places each time, when I do this again (probably over the weekend) I'll use auto focus and hope that the bird is in the right spot..

These last two were taken with my 2nd body with a Canon 75-300mm MKIII USM

Baby Robins

Well it looks like we have some robins nesting in the shed.. been watching them popping in and out using the gap in the top of the shed door.

When I have a little more time I'll stake out the door with my 70-200 with 2x tele on and see if I can grab a shot of them going in / coming out.

100mm out of a nifty 50!

In the words of Dr Brown, Incredible but True!

I managed to turn my Plastic Fantastic using my Kenko 2x Teleplus Pro 300 into a 100mm semi Macro lens..

To my surprise although the 300 isn't meant to accept less than 100mm, my 50 worked just fine, even auto focused!

Very happy with the results I get with this combination, I'm going to have to use it for the next wedding ring shot!
