From Don Edwards Wildlife Refuge near San Francisco... what a urban jewel this place is! My son and I spent several hours walking around there and we barely scratched the surface! All taken with the 7D and the 100-400L. Thanks for looking!

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Very nice set, Scrum. But that last shot is excellent. Too bad you couldn't have gotten a little head turn with that background.

Thanks, ETS, Peter and Jeremy! I've visited the Bay Area so many times but I can't imagine why I have never been here until now. Beautiful place!
