Nikon 200mm F2 wide open

I went to Par beach pool today with a new lens.  It's one which I have been waiting a while for to come my way.  The 200 F2 is world renowned as a sports lens but I have also wanted to try it on wildlife.  I wasn't disappointed.  In good light today, I used it at F2 (ie. aperture wide open at the maximum) ensuring fastest possible shutter speed and lowest depth of field.  The first results are below and I am pleased.  The main downside is the lack of reach though coupled to a 2x teleconverter, I'm not anticipating any real headaches.  Shutter speed by the way, was 1/5000s !
