Finally got my new lens, Nikon 80-400. Had a terrific deal. Here is the first result and the feeling that goes with it when the deal succeeded.

Thanks to all TN members who helped me with this hard decision. Hope you like it. Reina

Hi Reina,
Excellent shot, superb detail of a pretty scary looking animal. I though I had made up my mind on lenses to settle for the Sigma 50-500 but you've made me think again :) Great image.

Hi Reina
A real primordial outing. Great result with the new tool/toy. I am glad on your behalf, that you finally got what you were looking for and that it seems to work well with you.
Great capture and timing of this Hamadryas sacred baboon - Papio hamadryas. Your composition & POV are well done. The colours are nice and very natural. DOF & BG are perfect with good detail on the baboon.
Good work and TFS.

Hi, Reina.
What an extreme exprsession! Excellent exposure and details.

Great subject, very well done by you. Great sharpness and exposition. Thanks Reina.


Hallo Reina,

ik heb hem in mijn favoritenlijstej er bij gezet. Goede getimde foto. Je bent op het juiste moment op de juiste plaats. Klasse. Scherp zoals we van jou gewend zijn. Je ziet de fijnste haartjes. Prachtig het verschil in kleur tussen het gezicht van de baboon en zijn grijsachtige beharing. Uitstekende POV en achtergond. Ik geloof dat we maar blij moeten zijn niet tussen die kaken te zitten. Bedankt en tot TFS BOB
