Very nice shot, Doug, with a difficult (restless) subject.  Nice to see your
are still using the 6.8/560 Telyt.  I am still hoping to find that lens in
the Novoflex FF mount to use on any digital SLR.
Looks like even at ISO 400 the lens is still challenging to work with given
its 6.8 widest opening. Probably the R8/DMR mass (and your exceptionally
steady hand) help to hold this still at 1/60s.

... American Dipper (Cinclus mexicanus) was feeding in the Merced River in
Yosemite Valley:
technical stuff: R8/DMR, 560mm f/6.8 Telyt, shoulder stock & monopod.
ISO 400, 1/60 sec @ f/6.8
All comments welcome.
