Pigeon siesta

By KingArthur
On a recent sortie trying out my newly-acquired Nikon D300 fitted with the Nikkor 18-200mm VR lens, I came across this chestnut coloured pigeon basking in the afternoon sun backdropped against the deep blue harbour waters ..... while doing my utmost not to interrupt its mid-afternoon siesta, I couldn't resist not capturing this gem of a pigeon. Looking at the result, I don't regret it at all. Thought I'd share with you, enjoy.

Quite a matched combo the D300 with 18-200mm VR lens, I'm loving the results!

Cracking good capture Arthur. I have used a D300 in the past and found it very good indeed. Looks like you have a good start here.
