Thanks for comment on my 105mm! Mistake ... it was my 18-200mm (corrected). Yes, I had been shooting indoor photos of glass beads in one of the casinos and was set on "tungsten" ... even that was a mistake. My appearance must have been atrocious... had two people (at different times) as me if I was the poporache (sp.?)!! The birds were just hopping about feeding in the grass and this guy landed in a tree after I had quietly set-up about 8 meters from him. Came out o.k.
