Re: Share your wildlife photography!

thanks Biggs, I will try that on my next outing. I was going for the backlight on the wings, I need to work on that. I was concerned F8 woulndt have enough DOF, but I will try that setting next time out. Its getting al little late in the yr for birds tho. Very much appreciate your knowledge, and passing along some of your expertise.. You always have good tips.

Re: Share your wildlife photography!

Most lenses like f8.  No lens is at its best wide open or stopped down all the way.  When you get near f16 and f22 you start to have and see diffraction.  Of course f16 is better than f22 but f8 seems to be near the sweet spot.  Not too open and not too stopped.
