Hi All,
Merv from Oz..
I have always wanted to join this site just always had difficulty with the log in and register..
Anyway today I finally managed to join up.. A bit about me I started doing photography three years ago and soon after I started I purchased the 500mm mk ii and thus would consider myself a weekend warrior although I only managed to get out once a month.
Today I have sold my 500 for 7700$ AU as having a toddler I wont have as much time for this type of photography, I have purchased myself a 100-400mm mk ii to go with my 1dx mk ii for when I get the itch to shoot some birds.. Anyway here is a contribution from me, some of my fav pics taken over the last couple of years..

Cheers,

Merv

Merv, this thread is for the older version of the 500/4. There's a separate thread for the 500/4 II over here:

http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=922581

You should probably post there instead.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

I was aware that Bearded Tits had been seen at Westhay Moor in Somerset (UK). After 3 visits I had not seen any, only glimpse as they tended to be low down in the reeds. On my 4th visit within 15 minutes There were 6, 2 Males and 4 females, no more than 10 metres from me. They are absolutely stunning to watch.

I used my 2x TC and managed to get a good 30-40 shots which I was so very pleased with
