All of those are great Kjell, but the backlighting really works for that swan.

The light through the swans wings is just beautiful.

Impressive! Great pose on the swan. The timing was perfect. Really like the buttery smooth bokeh and reflection on the second shot. And I agree, the 600mm does make for a nice portrait. I'm curious. Could you post a pic of the 600mm lens and your tripod mount? How much is the weight of the lens?

Thanks for the nice comments, everyone. And thank you, swan, who posed so nicely for the camera.

It'a an A* 600 mm f5.6 The lens is no dwarf, but yet just weighs half of what the 600 mm f4 does. Weight3.280 kg,that corresponds to7.2 pounds. I bought mine from a professional photographer who have gone totally under water in his photography and sold off all his "over water" gear. He had bought this "for a seal job", customer paid all expenses and I benefitted from that.I would need a sturdier tripod, but they are not so easy to find if you don't want to pay as much for it as for the lens itself.

No, it's manual. It's not available in AF, then you'll have to go for f4, 3 kg more and another 5 grand or so.
