Telephoto lenses (like my 300 f/2.8 IS) and cold weather doesn’t always cope well. Often the lens has to cool down to the same temperature as the ambient temperature (or close to) before focusing correctly. This day was no different. At -22 C I had to micro adjust AF to +10 the first hour to get sharp pictures. After 1.5 hours I could dial it down to zero. Needless to say that I nearly froze my fingers of holding the lens and camera. Electric hand warmers can truly be finger saving =)
Lots of squirrels and a rare guest in the form of a grey headed woodpecker, and of course lots and lots av small birds, at the hide. Still no sign of the Goose or sparrow hawk.
