Hi Julie, Thanks for looking in. I used the Canon 100-400 IS for all the above shots [it's on my camera 99% of the time :-)]

Im still tossing up between the 100-400 or the 400 prime. Are most of these shot taken at 400mm?

Jake, yet another superb series! Last week, I was thinking back of stay that you & wife had at the wildlife preserve last year & how I looked forward to your posts from there. Thankfully, I found this series today! What great captures you continue to get! The Old Warrior is just awesome! The stories that he could tell!

Thanks for sharing!
Ron

Julie, most of the shots are @400mm, I do find the lens VERY versatile, in that the wildlife here can be large and close, so the ability to zoom out is very necessary, so for me, a prime 400 would be a hindrance. However, I have read that the 400 prime is sharper that the 100-400.

Thanks Winston and Ron - Ron there are two posts about a week ago that you might want to view as well :-)
