and thought I'd put a couple of pics up.
Taken with a Canon XT with a Canon 400mm f5.6 L lens.

Welcom Fitter!!!

This is a great place to post and get input (if wanted and sometimes just offered *S*). I love the two shots. I figured that that lens would not be very fast to stop the action but you did a great job of it on these post. Nice depth of field on these shots also.

I shoot Nikon myself but think Canon makes great equipment - especially for stop action stuff.

Again welcome to the forum and we look forward to seeing your photos.

Bill

Welcome Fitter. Super series of shots. I was out shooting with a bunch of other guys last week end and one of the guys let me try that lens. I loved it. Super fast focus for in flight shots. Seeing these pics is all the more convincing me to try to get one.

WOWEE!! I love the fawns - they are my favorite subject to photograph, but I don't have any as great as these.

THe eagle is absolutely wonderful - I've not seen one that I like better. They are all wonderful photos and such great variety.

So glad you joined the forums - I'm looking forward to more like these.
