Had a Ruby-crowned Kinglet SIT STILL on a branch flashing his crest at me this morning, 8 feet away, unobstructed. Except for the heavy downpour that fogged up my lens.

The fogged up lens is a fairly frequent problem here in Florida. even if it isn't actually raining the humidity can still be high enough to fog my lens.

Not correctly in focus......

This happens to me a lot. I look at the back of the camera, think I nailed a great shot, I get home and upload it, and realize it’s just soft, or out of focus.

This is what happened to me. I thought I had it in focus. Apparently not. I was using a converter with probably cause it. I was using manual focus too. I've learned by now just don't even try using the converter it isn't worth it. I was thinking it would be a perfect shot with the crab.☹️

Converters really only work well with the big expensive 500mm and 600mm f/4 lenses. Even my sigma 150-600mm f/6.3 doesn’t work well with one.

It would be better, but the autofocus wouldn’t work as well, if not at all, and the shots still won’t be as sharp.
