great shots, as always, Roger... i'm gonna have to get ME a rubber stamp now!!

Lesmore, i can vouch for Sigma lenses. i have the 80-400, which has a little less reach than Roger's "Bigma", but is stabilized (my Canon doesn't have internal stabilization). the optical quality that lens is capable of rivals the best lenses Canon can offer, as long asi do my part. Sigma has made some lenses that were not up to snuff, but the 80-400 and the 50-500 are not among them!

Right on, Roger! We have 'em here too. That white stuff looks like poo-squirt. These birds often nest in rocks and crags. While I was in Spain, I saw a Griffon Vulture walk to the edge of it's nest, turn around and emit a long stream of the white stuff. Any bird flying below the rocky ledge it was on (including it's mate) would have beenat risk of beinghit. A possibility here? Great shots. Dan
Hi to YA!!! Dan. I am sure your right about the white stuff. Thanks for commenting and for looking.

TOTALLY WACKY roger

Cool pics Roger! We call them by both names "Back East" also. I went to the County Dump once to drop off some debris. Thousands of Seagulls were there. Also, sitting by himself was 1 turkey vulture. No seagull would get within 10 feet of him.

Can't lose the reputation i guess, lol.
Mr. Cool Breeze hello to you. about the only time they are pretty is when they are flying. Not pretty up close. Thanks for commenting and for looking.

Thanks for the testimonial. I want to get a long telephoto zoom and it's good to hear and see what different makes can do.
