black billed magpie

Nice magpie shot! The ones we have here hate to have their pictures taken and although you can often get quite close, they fly away as soon as you raise a camera.

Wow...what a fantastic shot, Shalu!! It's not really eye to eye, but rather eye to mouth.

Thank you very much, Shalu. As pretty as he is...he will easily find his own wife. :lol:

You need to patent your method of shooting low angle shots. Get some special boots that you can call gimbal boots. Then make a video, and you'll be in business.

Thank you very much, Mike! Great idea! :lol::-P

Are you SURE that you don't have a deal with the devil?

That is a compliment, by the way!

Thank you very much, recrisp :lol:

Coot with stacked TC. It is time to up the game to 2 x 2X TC soon. My friend already tried it, BIF still works at 2400mm :lol:

Now I know where the phrase, "He's an odd duck" comes from. Odd behavior by a Northern Shoveler.

It's really unreal as to how sharp and in focus your stuff is, with or without the stacking.
Do you still have that shot of your camera and lenses and the stacked extenders around to show us again?
That was so interesting to me, and I am sure, a lot of others, I hope that I am not dreaming that I saw it.
I think that it was back when you first bought your red dot focus, or whatever that was.

I have no doubt at all that you can get that 2400mm's to work, I would LOVE to see a shot of that all put together too, to show us.
I wonder what all of this will weigh, have you weighed any of this?

Thanks, Sha!
