WOW!!! That is very good, I especially enjoyed the video. Have never seen a duck colored like this one. Would you tell me how to set up a video like you did to show it on the forum?

Beautiful shots Kashka. Those colors are right on. I like the 2nd one, it's as if he is saying Hey, Look at Me, LOL. So I take it you like your TCON?

Oops..I lied...I thought he was a pintail but I just checked..Common Merganser..but whatever his name I llike his blue beak.This is a learning experience all around..lol.
Thanks Pablo..his colours are something,eh...The video,which I also used my tcon with(resting against the windowframe of the truck) was uploaded to my host ISP (via FTP) and then I just post the url. My ISP allows a certain amt of storage so I save quite abit of stuff there in case the laptop decides to pack it in .
Bob so farI love it..lol..can you tell? I had some doubts at the beginning because my first few were very blurry and I didn't think I would want to use a tripod for everything.But these were just taken with it resting against the window and I am so far happy with that.:-)..but then again...Mr.Merganser was putting on a show and that helped..lol

Great pics Lisa. A very unusual, At least to me, Duck. Love the colors of his beak and back. You don't always need the tripod with the TCON lens but it will be a neccesity when you don't have a brace handy. No matter how you hold it then, you'll never be quite as steady as you would with a tripod. Good shooting from a soon vavating.....

You seem to be taking to the Tcon very well. Those are fantastic shots. Could you give us an estimate of how far away he was? Just curious. Again, nice shooting.
