Birdwatching at 4 am, rainy and cold. Dark, also. Two hours later it is still cold, but at least there are some birds: it's a B&W experience: Lapwings, Tufted ducks, and Terns! Jeroen's 1975 Rexatar 6.3 400mm on my Praktica, almost impossible to focus but for 69 guilders (1975 price, ±30 Euro!!) what can I expect. My 1980 SSC on Jeroen's Canon does the job better (the Terns are at least 60 meters away, small picture, Fomapan 400)
PS The next day I went back and made beautiful but digital pictures... (Look at my Flickr Photostream "I Love Birds")

This spring I spend a lot of time photographing birds (and nature). Did that in the sixties, with a 135mm Komura + Fodor (?) extender, but at the moment I use a 250mm AF IS repeater. So I thought it would be nice to try the 1984 Sigma again.
Well, good old Van Tienhoven (picture, with the Astro 500) was better. I know my lapwings, but can yóu actually see them?
