I must confess, Doug, that I haven't done as much serious bird photography as I would like and much of what little has been done was accomplished with non Leica 180mm and 300mm glass. I have had mixed results with APO-Televid and camera adapter - decent shots of nesting ospreys and small birds at the back yard feeders, utter garbage of least terns at a fenced off nesting area which - understandably - kept observers at a distance where even the 800 mm focal length was no help. And, of course, the best sightings occur when I have no camera. Roy On 1 Dec 98 at 19:44, Doug Herr wrote: > I had no idea there was another birder on the LUG.
