Roseate Spoonbill (Platalea Ajaja) balancing on a tree banch to perform it's mating ritual in an attempt to attract a mate at Smith Oaks Rookery, High Island Texas.

I also had my 1.4x TC attached for an effective focal length of 840mm shot handheld.

Amazing clarity and sharpness hand held. You have a steady aim. One of my favorites in the challenge.


Thank you. The dual IS Olympus has for the 300/4 is just amazing. Not sure about with the TC but without it I can handhold down to 1/30, but I do have really steady hands. Use to do a lot of competition shooting followed a 20 year military career.
