I got my new 100-400L yesterday and by the time I got off from work and picked it up and traveled out to the local lake it was getting late plus raining off and on. Lousy day. But I managed to get these two so as to have something to show. They are not the best but all I have for now.

#1 - Female Mallord (I think)

Resized, levels, FM, NR - ISO 400, 1/60th, F5.6

Yep, that L quality distinctly shows through on these; looks like you got yourself a good one there, Houston. All of that practice with the post-processing is now just icing on the cake to make the lens shine like it can.

You got yourself a winner.

Thanks dennis. I usually put that in my posts but just plain forgot this time. The first one was at 200mm and the second one at 190mm.

Nice shots.

The first one is probably an immature Black Duck, olive colored beak...

But is the second a domestic Duck gone bad? :-)

Just what is that guy?

Bmullen, Jake and Dave Thanks for looking in

Dave I really have no idea what that white duck is. This lake where I found them has Mallords along with the two I've posted here. I will ask some of the people that live on the banks. I'm sure someone out there will know.
