Still have not been able to get hold of a 500/4. Not so easy to come by, it seems. I have a question: were there any changes in the construction and/or design through the years, or are they all the same? Is there any real advantage to getting a "newer" model, say post 2010, over an earlier one, wear and tear issues aside? Some people seem to want "made after 2007" lenses. Anything to that?
Thanks.

It's been a while since the last post here.

Here's one from last fall in Switzerland. I have cheated a little with the motion blur. The shot is at 1/1250 sek, and I thought it looked a bit too static.

Beautiful shot.

They're a different sub-species to grizzlies but very similar. At times they were close enough to the hide to touch but most of the 'close' shots would have been 30-50ft.

Hide? What kind of hide? Fabric like a tent? :shock:

Male Common Emerald Dove (Chalcophaps indica) (external link) by alabang (external link), on Flickr

The Common Emerald Dove (Chalcophaps indica) is a pigeon which is a widespread resident breeding bird in the tropical and sub-tropical parts of the Indian Subcontinent and east through Myanmar, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia, to northern and eastern Australia. The dove is also known by the names of Green Dove and Green-winged pigeon. The Common Emerald Dove is the state bird of the Indian State of Tamil Nadu.

It has a number of subspecies, with three existing in Australia, longirostris from the Kimberly, Western Australia to Cape York Peninsula, chrysochlora from Cape York Peninsula to southern New South Wales as well as Norfolk Island and Lord Howe Island, and natalis from Christmas Island.

This is a common species in rainforest and similar dense wet woodlands, farms, gardens, mangroves and coastal heaths. It builds a scant stick nest in a tree up to five metres and lays two cream-coloured eggs. Breeding tends to occur in Australia spring or early summer in southeastern Australia and late in the dry season in northern Australia.

Its flight is fast and direct, with the regular beats and an occasional sharp flick of the wings which are characteristic of pigeons in general. It often flies low between the patches of dense forest it prefers, but when disturbed will frequently walk away rather than fly. They are particularly good weavers when flying through forests. When flying they expose a buff underwing and a chestnut colour of their flight feathers.

The Common Emerald Dove is a stocky, medium-sized pigeon, typically 23 to 28 centimetres (10 to 11.2 inches) in length. The back and wings are bright emerald green. The flight feathers and tail are blackish, and broad black and white bars show on the lower back in flight. The head and underparts are dark vinous pink (in chrysochlora, more brown in longirostris), fading to greyish on the lower belly. The eyes are dark brown, the bill bright red and legs and feet rufous.
