You know when you're napping quietly, and some schmuck starts snapping away? :p

Thanks for looking in, Craig! I have to say, it's doing pretty well so far. I'm really hoping for a new 7D, or equivalent, later this year. Given our weather I have to run this one in the 1250-3200 range most of the time. So, another stop or two noise performance would be nice.

Very nice detail on the bird with the mating plumage. He's just resting up, but what a mouth open shot! Looks like a cat coughing up a hair ball!

Good grief, that throat is simply scary!! What a great capture you have there, Eric. Now I understand how they manage to get those enormous fish down! Great set.

Cool set Eric.
I'm glad that lens is working.
Seems like a good substitute to the 100-400.

Perhaps you could shoot the same subject with both to see how they
really compare.

Thanks! Hehe, yeah, it was interesting to see...I had no idea there was enough room for that big of a tongue in such a narrow head :p

Thanks Jeremy! I've done a few shoots between the two now, and whenever I do a good enough job with the Tamron, they're all but indistinguishable to me at this point.
