Thanx again, all!!! Dave, I have the Canon 500 f/4 L IS. I still don't have a complete tripod setup (still waiting on a tripod head) so everything is hand held. The closeup of the hawk is actually an upsized part of a missed shot.

Hot damn, that Black duck is really a Black duck. I didn't know they had that blue part on the wings. I so rarely see them in flight, and it isn't visible when swimming.

Very nice shots. Once you use lenses in that class, its just hard to go back. I'm glad you like the lens!

I like that banking red-tail shot. Looks great.

Eric, thanx!! I didn't notice the black ducks until a lady came by and told me. They were about 100+yds away when I first saw them. They caught me by surprise when they flew. I was really lucky I caught one of them! I can't wait to put some extension tubes on the 500mm and take some closeups. I've seen some nice work with that combo.

Wow! Those black duck pictures are pictures I aspire to take (though I'm nowhere close yet). Color me impressed.

The duck shots are exceptional. All are great but I think you did a great job on capturing the ducks.

All are good, but the first two are exceptional.
