Alright Common, do you just hang out near trees and wait for the bids to come to you, or do you hike around and just happen upon these birds just sitting on branches? Incredible shots!

But he was long gone so i just shoot what was available, but believe me 7D is pain in @ss due to ISO. My good background pictures are blur even i push ISO to 800.

Wow, what an amazing bird. So while you're walking you just see these birds on branches and shoot? Apparently no birds like sitting on branches here in Florida... or at least its very rare!

hmm, normally they don't sit like wait for you to shoot :( (i wish they would do).
I spend around 5 hours and shoot 2 different birds, it was like searching searching and searching. Anyway there were around 15 more birders looking for birds so i also follow them when they shoot a bird ;).

If you did that handheld, I'm hiring you as a tripod....errr...bipod​. The other day I went out and left the tripod at home to see how hand-holdable this lens is. It's a workout but its surprisingly doable...in short bursts with a rest in between. It gets heavy, I'm not going to lie, but the IS helps so much with hand-holding.

I just thought of a question about something I experienced with this lens a bit ago. From any lens I've used before (such as my 100-400mm or a 300mm f/4), it will allow you to shoot through a chainlink fence or screen (with a little contrast loss), but when I tried shooting through a fence with the 600L, it does some really crazy things to the image. I was wondering if anyone else has had that experience with this lens.

My only true hand-held shot with the 600mm. It was after this I began using a monopod and gimbal for quick reaction shots.The bird was moving and trying to get the snake oriented to the beak and quickly went behind some shrubbery across the canal. You can tell I had to do some manipulation to make it seem more clear. I saw the scene as I was driving past. Stopped, grabbed the tripod and camera and tried to set up the gear, but realized I wasn't going to get anything if I didn't just lift the camera and lens and shoot.

In the avatar? That was in 2004, taken while I was on a shoot in Barcelona. I was 61 then. That bird shot was in 2008 and I was officially retired. If you think that is old--here's my most recent self portrait with a new 50-500mm Sigma OS.
