Thanks Roy!

I just thought it was a tribute to the K10D that a image can be cropped this much and still be presentable.

I don't think I've ever seen a sandhill crane in person yet - from your picture, they sure look impressive. And as I've said before, I love the hooded merganser.

The K10 does allow for quite a bit of cropping, but I actuallyprefer your full-frame merganser - I like the ripples in the water with the duck in the center (I just read that mergansers are diving ducks, wasn't sure if they were actually a type of duck or something else more or less related).

Sandhill Cranes (in mtngal's photo) look similar to the endangered Whooping Crane. I think the main difference is the Whooper has a white body. Unfortuantely because of the close similarity, there has been the occasional Whooper has been shot, by accident.

Both pix are excellent. Really very good.

Those are impressive examples of the cropability (new word, I am patenting it) of the K10d. I like your hooded merganser, I have never seen one before and had no idea what it was until mtngal named it. Here in central FL you practically can trip over sandhill cranes and they ARE impressive birds.

Tim - the only time I've seen a hooded merganser was at the Flamingo Casino - they have lovely gardens with an assortment of birds. I was so fascinated with them, I took tons of pictures and looked them up - seeing them in the wild would be so cool - I envy Tom his ability to see so many birds so often.
