Thanks very much everyone. It was a treat to see one of these so relaxed. I actually thought at first it might be injured, but was relieved to see otherwise...cheers...Don

Thanks Rocky. The 300 is a really nice lens. Fairly light, and IQ is very good. You should give one a try if you're not happy with your 100-400. The primes are probably a little sharper. As far as getting close goes, the Towhees around here aren't too skittish if you can find the right one. Some want nothing to do with humans, and others seem quite curious....cheers....Don
