Hi Bill. Thanks for the comments. I'm using the Pentax istDS with the FA*300mm f/4.5 attached. It's an ok combo, but I don't think it compares to the Canon and Nikon photos I've seen here from others using those cameras and lenses-or maybe I'm just not that good at shooting wildlife (that's probably it). I'm hoping the new Pentax that is supposed to be out this fall (k10d), is a step up in image quality - otherwise I'll probably be making a switch.........cheers........Don.

Well Don,

I usually just shoot landscapes but sometimes animals seem to get in my way so I shoot them *S* with a camera. I have a Nikon Cool Pix 8800 with all the attachement lenses and it performs outstanding (generally). I also have a Nikon D200 with a 17 - 35 f2.8 that I just got for doing landscapes. I am looking into a zom of 70-200 f2.8 for the D200.. when the piggy bank can handle it..

Bill

Very nice, especially with the water reflections. The yellowlegs are now migrating through our area so you've inspiried me to go out and photo one.
All the best,

Don't undersell yourself or your equipment, Don.These shots, and others, show otherwise !!
