This is my new 500mm zoom. Normally I have avoided Sigma but in this case the 150 - 500mm
showed up on a preferred list with good reviews. Sigma is taking more quality care these days
I suspect. TG
PS> no tripod. rest against car door frame.

One tip with the lens Tony at full 500 it suffers softness at the edges, just below 500 AOK, great capture.

Thanks for c & cs and thank you Trev. I will keep that in mind to stay a little short on 500mm for important quality. TG

I was on auto-pilot when uploading this little seal. The exif lists Canon 70-300 when
in fact the lens used is the new,[ to me], Sigma 150-500. Gotta watch that damn
auto-pilot. TG
