Since upgrading to a DSLR I still only have my 100mm macro lens - not great for birding. It has taught me patience though when it comes to birding, let the birds come to you.

Take today in the Pilansberg.

Excellent, Justin! If you're getting shots like that with a 100mm macro, just wait until you upgrade to something more pwerful <!-- s:shock: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_eek.gif" alt=":shock:" title="Shocked" /><!-- s:shock: -->

Well Done Justin, very lucky...and brilliantly captured. Were you using a flash, or is that the nictitating membrane in the first shot as well??

Thanks for the comments.

Justin, no flash was used, so nicitating membrane in both photos.

Cheers,
Justin

The 100mm Macro is a very VERY sharp lens. If you can get close enough, I would choose it over most others. Also, being f2.8 helps!
