got a break in the gray drippies today, so took advantage of the sun and went to the park this morning. i was rewarded with, among other things, some nice bufflehead pics... 40D, 400mm, 1/1600 @ f/6.3...

Awesome shots Squirl!! Love the bif's, and also, how you managed to get the light at the right angle to see the head colouring. Well done!....cheers...Don

These guys are fast - hard enough to fine and keep in the viewfinder, let alone get so sharp. Well Done! :O

I echo everything said so far. Terrific shots. These guys are really hard to expose to get the colors on the head right without blowing out the highlights, especially in flight. I was lucky enough to shoot a few of these guys yesterday, also, but didn't get any flight shots close to the quality of these. Well done.
