Hi Folks.
So many great shots since my last comment, I have been trying to get out a bit more and spend less time here while the weather is nice, plenty of time for forums when it's crap weather!
Here is the one result of more time out, I've been trying to get a nice shot of Rooks, Crows, Ravens or Jackdaws for a while, Monday I was killing some time waiting for a customer and took my 40D and 70-300 (non L, I didn't have anything better with me!) to the cliff top.
This one sat eying me cautiously and twitching every time I moved a bit closer, and boy was it windy there, hence the feathers over his / her crop being spread open!
It looks to me like the lens body combo front focus a bit and no AFMA. :(
