I was out with Wifey's new hardware today. I gotta say, this thing rocks! Focus lock & tracking is better than anything I've ever shot with.

Very nicely done shot, Phil. This shot is amazingly sharp, and the background is great.

This looks like some sort of Swallow, but it's not one I've seen before.

That shot came out pretty nice, considering you had to shoot thru the window to get him. The blue is so striking on that bird.

Thanks Mike

It's also a dirty window as the little dear ones love to preen in front, plus it's double glazed.
I'm surprised it does render these as they do.

Wow!! That sure is a gorgeous shot of a really lovely bird.
Will your wife get the gear back?

A beautiful little fluff ball.
Is it a juvenile.
Whatever it is you have done it justice.

Lovely close shot. Looks like a Northern Rough-winged Swallow to me.

That's what I'd call a world-class shot, Rob.
