I was out poking around at East Beach in Galveston, TX recently and caught this Western Sandpiper right at sunset. I was very pleased with the performance of the Sigma 100-400 C on this one which was at 400mm and f/6.3. C&C is welcome

That light and color of the water is really nice Greg. I love the low angle perspective, too. How do you rate the autofocus speed of the Sig 1-400?

Great low perspective, nice isolation of the subject and the light is great. Nothing wrong with this pic in my opinion.

Thanks for the encouragement! I don't think the Sigma AF speed is going to win any contests but it isn't too bad, I didn't find it restrictive. I was able to get flight shots of several of the small sandpipers with it so I'm pretty happy with my decision to save some bucks and go the Sigma rout here.

Beautiful, intimate, well-balanced portrait (I like the golden light reflection on the right).

Thanks for posting.
