Great series Al.

Cicero, that Starling shot is one of the best I've seen of that bird.

Neil, your work is always outstanding.

Here are a few recent captures with the MK IV and 500L:

Likewise dude!

Nice Steve. Still in Florida. I will be in Myrtle Beach again this year and will visit the Huntington Beach again. This time I plan to walk out to the the Jetti to see what I can capture out there. I plan to purchase a backpack to hike out there (don't want to walk the beach for 1 mile with my rig over my shoulders). I also will go to the nature center so that I can get some more (better) shots of the Painted Bunting.

This peacock was flying around a local urban area and landing on house rooftops. I have never seen one fly, it looked like a real effort for the bird :)

Yeah I tried this out and it works but you need to be a god enough distance, shooting far a far is not suggested when stacking a 1.4 and 2x TCs. Also the nice part is that the 1series will still AF cause the 2xtc read and set it at f8. A nice clean path between you and the subject will make for a nice image, but MF in live view might be the best option and a standing still subject is even better. Also good light helps as always.
