I liked this "crowd" of curious Impala. Iquicklyreduced myaperture to f29 to get a deeper DOF, so with my car's engine running and hand held, i think the 100-400's IS did a good jobat 1/60s

A Lilac-Breasted Roller - The overcast weather is quite evident in the back-ground, although his colors still quite vivid

A Serval cat - A real treat to see, something we have not seen before, and normally nocturnal {sorry about the road in the shot, not something I like doing}. He appeared with his mate for a brief few seconds, then vamoosed. A beautiful creature indeed.

Jake, those are some really fantastic shots!!!! the impala croud is just outstanding!!! The 100-400mm is a very nice lens for all sorts of stuff. I think too many people underrate the lens! The serval cat is beautiful as I am partial to cats. All of them are really nice!!

Jake, I really like that Impala shot! The expressions, grouping and DOF of the animals is wonderful. The other shots are fantastic and Id love to see that Lilac Roller in sunlight!
