Grandin Pond, St. Albert, AB, Canada
June 25, 2010
Another great performance by my Sigma 150-500mm lens. This was shot with a setting of f/7.1 @ 500mm (nearly wide open) to compensate for the lower light. I think a Canon 7D will help with the low light disadvantage of this lens, and I'm still thinking if I should get it.

Found this fairly tame Kingfisher and it was sitting there for at least good 10 mins. Just too bad the sunlight disappeared and I had to crank up the ISO in order to get a 1/640s to minimize unnecessary camera/lens shake.
