There's a pond next to the hotel I'm staying at here in Faribault, MN. This afternoon I took my 7D for a walk, using the 100-400L and a 1.4 extender. This image is about a 25% crop from the full frame. Although some feel that extenders give necessarily poor performance, IMHO this isn't bad for a rank amateur.

C&C welcomed.

No indeed, not bad at all. Petty good I would say. The white wall is a little distracting but all in all Well done.

Thanks, all. It's always good to receive encouraging feedback.

For a couple of shots of the same bird in flight, look here.
