I find that they love to fish so close to my that the 400mm F5.6L can not focus on them without tubes.

All taken with a 20D, 400 ISO, F8 and 400mm F5.6L.

One thing that I noticed was that if I am using servo with a super fast focusing lens like the 70-200mm F4L or 400mm F5.6L I get 90%+ keepers vs.40% with my old arc form drive focus lenses. I see the true power of ring USM and L. I am not afraid to shoot wide open anymore.

Great set Nick. Gotta wonder how they don't break their necks.
