    Weather was really bad this weekend. Most Camera Junkies would have put the equipment away. I tried to make the best of the foul weather, but the "white skies" did not help. Too much white light is really not good. But I do think some pics came out quite nice. Did not do too much editing, as it just worsened the pics because of the white skies.:

    Pleasure :)

    Haha, I am not a Bull anymore, I am an OX now. More here: What is an Ox

    Thank you, but I only do it for the fun, plenty of guys out there with very expensive equipment, like Marius, Waldo etc, unlike the cheapies I use.

    :lol: :lol: , Unfortunately yes, as well as a standard 70-300mm lens. I have lost my lenses, now I must make due with the bottom of the range, cheap lenses. Would love to get the L- Lenses and just snap away, instead, now I have to take plenty of pics to maybe get 01 decent pic. :( :(

    Also need to be very close to the subject, and normally have Alida and the kids crapping themselves when The big Beasts are too close for comfort. :biggrin: :biggrin:

    Thanks jclaas
