I figured you were on a 3-series Gitz and the Wimberly.

That's a bullet I'm just going to have to bite I guess. Frustrating because I do far more hand-held shooting but the tripod/head I do have just isn't up to the drill for the 500 (heck, it barely supports the 300...)

I remember those days. Heavy arse manfrotto aluminum tripos dinky ball head mad vibration without even touching the camera. Now with my wimberly that 500 is locked pretty good, still some vibration but 99% cut down.

Note to oneself...you need to get the Canon 2x. Nice shots SEV. Hell just finding one of those nest is indeed a task in itself...at least for me.

Heat is a photo killer, can't tell you how many times I am trying to catch a bird in a corn field and the 1d3 can't focus for crap due to amount of heat coming off the ground.

I think it kind of makes the image in this case though. There are no small details per se so why not take the water-color effect and run with it!

It's interesting though how even on a very temperate day (low 50's probably), there is still significant heating going on. Very noticeable when you're compressing the world hard with the 500!
