NHL,

As usual (or should I say "always!") a fantastic set of photos of birds. The first one especially is so clear and good dof.

I must say it isn't such an attractive type of bird (at least to me, imho) but you took great photos of them.

What lens did you use, I noticed (from exif) that you took the first photo at 400mm f8 and the second at 285mm f8. So I'm guessing the Canon 100-400mm L IS?

Thanks for sharing

Paul

Yeap - I shots theses images using the 100-400L IS

Theses big birds are not scared that easily, they were actually performing the 'mating dance' right in front of me - but I'm against the sun... :evil:





-> If I went the other way in the water, for the better light, the gators will have a field day with me... instead! :blah:
