Who says ‘life’ doesn’t exist in cities! Thanks for sharing these wonderful pictures.

Is this the Sigma lens? I recall reading in one of the threads you had bought either a Sigma or a Tamron. Unable to recollect the specifics.

None of the Sigma/Tamron zooms are f5.6 at 500mm. It is the Nikon 200-500 f5.6.
Blame it on the ‘GAS’ that I suffered from.
BTW, GAS = Gear Acquisition Syndrome

A couple cat shots, not sure if they fit under 'wildlife' but don't seem to belong to the category of 'pets'.

The first photo is very nice. The D810 and the lens make a very nice combo. I was using the D610, the photos were not that sharp as ones taken with a camera without the OLPF filter.

The first one had some decent evening light, hence the ‘pop’.
The second looks a bit dull as it was shot on a dark and cloudy day and was shot @700 mm with the lens mounted on a Nikon 1.4x TC.

I am not sure, since I don’t see any significant difference in sharpness on screen from my earlier zooms, didn’t pixel peep though.

May be its evident with the high resolving Nikkor 200-500.

BTW, the crop-ability of D810 is fun.

The other day, I found these posing for me for a while. No much scope of any captures as it is quite cold in here now and hardly there any light as well.

This mean-looking tom can usually be found sunbathing on top of the diesel generator of our building.

Yes, I mean it.
Painful, but the reality.

Nice set of pics M35, especially the Pelican landing for a shower. It's in full action for sure and the angle in which its shot is just perfect.

By the way what camera are you using? and what all collection you possess in your GAS

I was in fact lying flat on the ground, trying to get as low as possible.

It is a long list, many got sold as I looked for ‘upgrades’.
Currently I have with me a Nikon D810, Nikkor 200-500 f5.6, Nikkor 50 f1.8 and a Nikkor 24-120 F4. I got a few lenses in a dry box back home in India as well.

Thanks.
I used D810 + 200-500 f5.6 with and without TC-14III.

Few more additions from the most recent photo-walk. The first one looks like a 'Redstart' to me. Spotted the last two for the first time.

A couple of very long shots with the 200-500 + TC 14E III. Cropped heavily for comparison. The air wasn't great, hence satisfied with the result.

Coot Chicks !
Coot Chicks begging for food. There were quite a few. As I read elsewhere, if there are too many chicks for the available food the parents attack the weaker chicks instead of feeding them. The poor chick eventually gives up begging for food and dies. Strange !!!...
