Great pose, lovely light in her eye, nice and sharp, and fine colors too. Do you use a tripod with the 170-500? It's a pretty heavy lens, isn't it?

Thanks very much, guys. Yes, I do use a tripod. But, 99% of my "wildlife" images are shot through double-pane window. Hopefully, when the warmer weather gets here, that will change. The Sigma 170-500mm weighs in at 1345 grams... just under 3 pounds. It's got some heft, but it's not terribly heavy.
