Re: OM 350 mm f/2.8

Mourning Dove portrait. A test to see how well the OM 2x-A works behind the 350mm on a 4/3 body.

Re: OM 350 mm f/2.8

350mm with the EC-20 this time. Just a record shot, terrible light and drizzling but having seen Snowy Owls multiple times this was my first chance of a photo.



On one occasion I had one fly past me along the Lake Huron shoreline as I was setting the tripod up.

Thanks Phill, I'm getting close to finishing editing the hundreds of slides I copied last winter so keep finding more images taken with the lens.

Re: OM 350 mm f/2.8

Some none wildlife images with the lens. All from Ontario and all digital captures.

First some autumn colour on the Niagara Escarpment.



A sailboat on Colpoys Bay at sunrise.



Some trees in early morning light with mist. There was probably the EC-14 behind the lens for this as I was after an uncooperative Western Meadowlark at the time.



And finally, Chantry Island Lighthouse at dusk with ice on Lake Huron in the foreground.

Re: OM 350 mm f/2.8

Some more North American mammals, all from Saskatchewan in the winter and all on film this time.

First, some White Tail Deer at dusk. I was waiting for the moon to rise, a shot at the beginning of the thread, when the Deer appeared across a small valley.



Next, the photographer being watched by a Coyote that isn't sure if it's been spotted.



And finally, an Eastern Gray Squirrel, the same species as the Grey Squirrel introduced to the UK. This one is in it native habitat and surviving the cold. It was around -30C at the time, you can see frost on the tips of some of the hairs of its tail.

Re: OM 350 mm f/2.8

Some birds on film. All from a hide on a reservoir in south Cheshire in the 90's.

First a gymnastic Eurasian Wren having a little sing.



A pair of Great Crested Grebes displaying.



A Sedge Warbler.



And finally an immature Grey Heron trying to decide if part of the stump is edible. Some people may recognise the stump. I've got quite a few species on the stump, some of which have appeared in books and magazines.

Re: OM 350 mm f/2.8

This thread is a great example of what you get if you match an exceptional lens to an exceptional photographer.

Thanks John. It was only when I went through my slides to copy some last year that I realised how many none wildlife images I had taken with the lens..
