Wow!!! I'm looking at these on my phone and I'm quite impressed with the 500mm + 2x photos you've gotten here. Can't wait to see these on a computer screen.

Nicely done!!!

Heh, heh. Ian, the Eagle Whisperer! I bet those were his thoughts exactly. Beautiful shooting and enjoyable story line, Buddy. Even got my pine in there. :-)

Very nice Ian, had to come inside to see these on the big screen. How did that fish end up in the grass, lol. Great job as usual!
