Default Full Flaps

A couple of shots of a Common Tern playing in the early morning sun...It's amazing to watch these little guys and their ability to fly as if they were doing an air show for you...I thought it was really neat that they can hover for short periods of time to...Hope you like...

Default Wow

Although a bit long in the tooth, the Canon 20D was and still is a fine camera. Your captures reinforce that. Of course a 400mm lens helps a bit too.

Great captures.

Default Thanks Again

Thank you for the nice comment Zig...My 20D has been a work horse over the years and I am getting close to 75,000 shots without the first problem...
Salt, fog, rain, heat, cold and still snappin away...Put a good lens on a good body and you get good shots...I'm slowly breaking in the new 50D to salt, fog, rain, heat, and cold...Hopefully, it will make it to the 75,000 shots or more as well....
