Thank you, Jan. I have a 60D, but a Sigma 100-500 lens. My photo was taken also with aperature f/5.6, exposure 1/1000 sec, ISO 200 and focal lenth 300mm. I guess the type of lens plays a role. I really enjoy your photos and visited the Tales link where you have posted a few. Lake Panic is also my favourite and been fortunate everytime I went there. I will post a few photos. :thumbs_up:

Bush Baptist, I have checked out your suggestion of Die Oog and will pay the area a visit some time and keep an eye on their webpage for any news. :)

a Few years back I also used a Bigma and almost stop taken photographs because every time I thought I had a great image, when opened on the computer the image was soft. I think for portraits and if you hold the lens still it can still work but for birds in flight it is to slow. May be the new Sigama's are better but that is just my opinion :D
