The famous GBH of Ed Levin park gave me chnace to shoot him, here in Milpitas, CA. And he did it without even asking for a mouse. I switched to 100-400L as I wasn't sure how sharp the prime would be when hand holding. Wish I had the 400mm f5.6 lens on 10D when he decided to take off.

They're all great shots bobby. I like them all and I'm with Dennis as my favorites are the last two. Quite a pose you caught on those.

Great shots Bobbyz! No.4 is my favorite.I've never seen these guys on dry land. They're always knee deep in water around here. Those last two sort of resemble what the eagles do when they do-do, only without the flinging wing thing. :lol:

Just beautiful, bobby, and those unorthodox poses top the series off real nice.

PS - I've personally found that the 400 can be handheld as long as the shutter speeds are kept reasonably high
