Lannie:  If the bird was a half mile away, you are very farsighted.  Good capture, given the shooting conditions, well done.  Tom

I like the photo - it is appealing. However, as noted above, I think 1/2 mile might be a bit of a stretch. I have that same lens and a similar body and I know I could not come close to resolving that bird at even a quarter of that distance. 1/2 mile is close to the length of 9 football fields. Distance aside - nice capture.

Ah - I should have gone with my instinct and gone along with your humor!


All the best

Maybe I should have said "ten miles," so as not to be misunderstood.  Thirty feet (maybe the distance) was too far for this lens.

Thanks for your comments, guys.

Just Hanging Around Shot from maybe a half mile away: One of these days I will have the right lens at the right time--the time that a hummingbird comes around. This was cropped from a much larger photo. Comments welcome.
