I just picked up this lens. Still getting used to it but I like it so far.

Here's a pair of cardinals getting ready for winter.

Crow in top of tree.

Heavy crop and a heavy lens hand holding for too long as he swayed in a gentle breeze.

Just picked up a used 100-400L ii. IQ and AF seem good in backyard testing, but I noticed this on the inner (middle of the lens) element. It appears to be a drop of some kind of fluid, with a light smear mark toward the outside of the lens. It was hard to photograph but i think you can see it here

Has anyone ever seen this?

local flying fox. Hardest thing Ive ever tried to get in flight. Way harder than most birds IMO. Its all about getting close enough and with enough light left in the day as they dont fly that much during day. My 400mm f2.8 is just too heavy to handholdand track properly( tripod or monopod no good as they weave in and out of trees) so the 2 stops more light of the prime is no advantage at all . Thats where the 100-400s weight really comes into play. Makes it worth the loss of the 2 stops( 2 stops more iso) just to be able to keep the lens trained on the target handheld. I spent 1 full day with the 400mm 2.8 and 1 day with the 100-400mm 5.6 and the keeper score was 400mm prime = 5 100-400mm = 20-30 !

For anyone interested in the little australian red flying fox can see a video here https://www.youtube.co​m/watch?v=wi30w-Mk2yQ (external link)

Couple more. between 5 and 10,000 of these guys live not far from me on the river that runs back of my place . Lucky enough they are far enough away I cant hear them screeching as they make a huge racket even during the day when they are meant to be asleep!....

Great series of the bats! They are interesting critters and you captured them well. It is neat for us to get a glimpse of their lives.
