Beautiful picture that confirms the proficiency of 250 mm lens in wildlife photography. I have been intersted in reptiles from my childhood and the Trionyx is IMHO one of most fascinating. Is the picture taken in Everglades?

Thank you Ale,
Yes, this guy was found in the Loxahatchee Slough in Palm Beach County.
The 250mm Sonnar is very sharp and small enough to be easy to carry around.
Thanks for looking,
Dave

Yes, and mind: never forget to carry a 16 or 21 mm ring with this lens every time you can!
