Very cool. Liking your stuff from up there Scott. Man, talk about white on white! Was focusing an issue?

Very nice indeed. I was in Churchill many, many years ago, but may have to plan a return trip.

Thanks. In general focussing was fine - and I was using single point with expansion so I could have gone to single point or precision if needed. The only two times I had an issue were in falling snow (which is always tricky) and with the willow ptarmigans where I just focussed on the feet instead of the eye.
