Thanks alady, vendor, woody, codger. Vendor, that's the book I was looking for last week and the bookstore was out of 'em. Alady, yep, them's the ones I'd guess, but I'm no expert on native affairs or history here.

I thought any lense with a 1.4 X or 2X teleconverter would not AF (if max aperature is f/5.6 or smaller) on anything but the 1D series cameras. Normcar, are you using a 1D Mk2? if not is there something different about the 400 f/5.6 compared to other lenses of f/5.6 or smaller?

Normcar,

I liked all of those. Great close ups from that distance in the air. I definitely think the second one however is a class apart. Absolutely first class. I'm not sure but if anything a slightly darkening or increase in colour saturation of the sky to add a bit more hit is my only suggestion. Then again maybe not.

Great stuff.

Ian

Thanks for the comment and suggestions, Ian. I appreciate it. A darker sky would definitely make the breast come out more.

Normcar, to get these fantastic flight shots are you using continuous mode at 8.5 fps? or single shot? you're pics are amazing. have you trie posting them on the Nature Photographers Net? Some great pictures there too.
