Think of it as exercise equipment. The Black Rapid shoulder strap system (and the lower cost alternatives) makes it much easier to carry a heavy camera.

Really great photos, Ronny. Your sigma lens does quite a fine job. I've tried shooting birds from time to time, but not with much success.

Thanks Ed,

We all have out comfort zone, the stuff we like to shoot because we're good at it.
Only sometime you have to push yourself to do something else.
For me it was macro work and ... now I'm trying a bit of bird shots.
People are still completely out of my comfort zone, but friends are pushing me in that direction.

Ronny,
I love the series. Especially love #1 and #4 (the last one).
The detail in #1 is mezmerizing. And the posture of #4 is so peaceful and dynamic all at once!
I love it!
