Found this fellow sitting in a tree with his lady friend which you can just see to the right. It was tough to get a clear shot, and the lady friend was behind too many branches...cheers...Don

sweet shot, Don, one of the best woody pics i've seen... that 300 looks like a marvelous lens, and you seem able to get close enough that the shorter telephoto doesn't hurt...

Thanks very much Bob. It's the 300L f/4 IS. I tried the f/2.8. Too heavy for me. I like the weight of the f4, as I can carry it around for 3 or 4 hours with no problem. I think it's about 1/3 the weight and 1/3 the cost too....cheers...Don

Thanks very much everyone! Your comments are very appreciated!

Yes Rocky, I can get pretty close the Woodies out at a local park/reserve. They're very tame there compared to the usual place I go out "hunting"...cheers..Don
