Sony 100-400 G Master

Another visit to the river to watch the Sea Trout jumping the weir at Hornby, they were very quiet today so only got chance to test it a few times but off what i got the 100-400 seems to nail the fish better than the 200-600 using the same settings from yesterday. I may get a chance at the end of the week but i could do with the light being a bit better .


f4.5, ISO 800-1250, Shutter 3200, Focus area Zone, Metering Multi, Focal distance 100-150mm

The trout image top right was one that jumped that high it went above the weir a good 6 feet.

I am 63 years old and and since a boy have had an interest in wildlife and in particular birds. I help my Dad with the rearing of young finches and other birds. I had many small birds as pets and as i got older and joined the Military i purchsed my first Camera, and fold out Kodak. Over a 22 year period i enjoyed many countries outside the uk and observed many species of birds. When i left the military in 2000, i bought my first digital camera a Canon 450D with a Tamron 70-300 and started my journey on capturing images of birds and animals. I quickly learned that there was a lot more to getting a good image of a bird, so i started to research the best settings for my camera in order to capture a better image. Over a 12 month period i realised that needed to invest in a better camera and lens and after research bought a Canon 50D and a 100-400 Lens. It was 2013 when i really got to grips with the setup and came across a lovely Short Eared Owl. From that meeting i started to concentrate on Owls as they fasinated me. From Canon to Olympus i recently jumped ship again to Sony. The variety of birds i have captured over a 10 year period is vast and at present i have a wildlife hide in lancashire where most of my images are captured.
