very good - they haven't come out in Richmond Pk yet (first week of May usually) but I always look forward to this macabre mating ritual. I haven't managed any as good as this....so far.

from tests i've seen the 40D isn't significantly better at high ISO than the 400D, the 5D cameras are a full stop better but have disadvantages for macro.
