That intense stare gives me kind of an eerie feeling when I stare back at this guy. Terrific shot, Rob!

Paul, you have an innate ability to capture the most awesome images! This two shot series is so impressive! I would most definitely hang one or both of these shots on the wall.

Beautiful shot, fotoi! You've really capture some great color in this image.

Excellent capture, Tom! It looks like this guy was in full stride when you pressed the button.

This is a beautiful capture, Steve! The overall subtle colors, plus the sharpness of this shot, make it very attractive.

Lovely three shot series of this belted kingfisher, Theresa! Very nice work. I especially like the third shot, which shows water droplets flying in all directions.

Stunning shot of this heron, marfy! Nice work.

Thank you, Mike.

Thank you for the most generous and kindly compliments Mike.
The Cranes aggressive behavior really surprised the heck out of me.
Happy trails.

A real cutie, Mike. Excellent and compelling portrait in all respects.

Beautiful feather detail Mike, I'm going to have to dust off my 100-400 Mk II as I have been using the RF 100-500 recently.

I'd forgotten how good the 100-400 with x1.4 TC is.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

Many thanks, Dennis. Like you, I tend to use My 100-500 a lot more than the 100-400. It's a lot lighter. I have to remind myself just how good a lens the 100-400 is.:-)
