My photography skills are improving, so I am looking at purchasing a telephoto lens for my dSLR Nikon camera, and I need your help choosing the appropriate lens for what I will use it for. Initially, I plan to photograph soaring/flying and not-close-to-me birds, running horses, and other fast-moving objects, mostly (but not exclusively) in color. The lens should have a fast autofocus option, should not be too heavy (I've already got three lenses that I drag around with me, and am eyeing a couple more) and of course, should not be terribly expensive.

This is one of the last photographs I snapped in Helsinki -- I chose to spend my last day in Finland on the historical island fortress of Suomenlinna (which is one of my favorite places to go and to photograph). One of my goals is to return to Helsinki and to stay in a hotel on the island of Suomenlinna (preferably in winter) so I can capture the more difficult images that I have in my head. At this time, I am not sure how I will accomplish this (maybe I can be an invited speaker somewhere?), but I am open to your suggestions!
