Ahhh, I love seeing your Chickadee shots Norm. They are eye-poppers.
Excellent job. That Mark III really complements your talent.

Knowing how fast those little suckers move makes me appreciate your shots even more.

Norm, you have got it down on catching those Chickadees in flight. Very impressive results with 2500 ISO.

Norm, great shots!!!!! wow!!! iso 2500 looks better than iso 200 on my 30d nd 20d. as soon as canon fixes the focus issue (hardware fix is officially coming) i'll be getting one. your flight shots are totally fantastic!!! give us a hint on how, please!!!!

Thanks for the compliments Steve, Bynx, VP, Daniel, Bob, Jim and Dennis. Much appreciated. Thanks for buttering me up, Dennis, even though I know I don't deserve it, it's fun to hear :-)

Here are are few more with the 200/1.8 and 100-400 lenses. I visited the Edmonton zoo recently on my way home from an appointment with a car dealership and spotted this critter rushing across a very pointy fence line just before entering the zoo area. I'm sure some of you who have visited that zoo will recall the sharp fence line...could be an ugly thing if the squirrel ever lost it's footing. I was pretty amazed at it's agility. Shot with the 100-400


Upon return to my chickadee area I decided to take out the 200/1.8, a lens I've not been using much lately, but really wanted to give it a go.



Thanks again, guys. Much appreciated.
