Trip to Tommy Thompson Park: Arctic Terns
The chief reason I went to Tommy Thompson park was to put my Sigma 500mm lens to the test. I got that opportunity when I spotted a small flock of Arctic Terns relaxing amidst seagulls on one of the newly created spits in the park.
I find the focus at full extension to be a bit “mushy”, so most of these are shot between 400-450mm. Even so, for the most part these are not as crisp as I would like in terms of the focus, though to be fair things were beginning to get overcast by this point, and I did not bring along a tripod or monopod to help steady the camera and its heavy lens.
Here are a fewof the better shots:
