Thank you very much, Mike! I really tried, but it was a bit too high for me. If I were Kevin Durant's height, I might have succeeded :lol::-P

Thank you kindly Bkopperl...but I'm far, far from it. I hate to say this, but given the choice of one camera, I'd still go with the 7DII.

Absolutely perfect, Shalu. The number 1 bird on my bucket list. I have a couple of shots, but they're not very good.
