Terrific drake wigeon shot, fotoi! The colors and the birds pose are both very nice.

Thanks Mike. It's a pleasant day when I first see the returned (for the winter) White Pelicans. I just love photographing them.

How's the R5 working? Samples I seen indicate things are going well. :-)

It's working out quite well, Phil. The only thing that I don't like is, having to always have my 1.4 TC on it. With the 100-500 Canon zoom, I'm shooting with an aperture of f/10 most of the time. At the pond I go to much of the time, I just cannot get that close to my targets.

I had an extremely rare sighting today.

This fella is native to India and typically spends time in Europe & South Africa, but this one was in Dallas TX. today. I think he likes TX Mosquito's! :-)
