Hey nice work with the monopod. How's it handle as far as getting around and setting up for a shot? Your pics look sharper than before.

Thankyou Royce.
I use the Manfrotto 676B monopod http://www.manfrotto.com/Jahia/site/...03|113&idx=115
a Manfrotto quick release head with safety lockhttp://www.manfrotto.com/Jahia/site/...03|113&idx=114
The K100D connects quickly and easily , then I just carry the whole set by the monopods hand grip ready for action. I leave all the sections open and locked except the very top one which allows you to quickly change the height. It still allows you to shake side to side but you can usually find something to lean against, as my shots show it does help a lot and much quicker and easier than a tripod.

Great shots - you really seem to have got this birding business sorted.
