Gorgeous shots! We spotted some American wigeon on our last outing, but they stayed far away and the shots I got were nothing like these! Well done! John

Great shots Lester, if only mine were as good. So far I'm very disappointed with my Tamron 150-600, could be me or perhaps it's the dreaded 7DII focus issues.


I like what I like.
