Thanks Steven, I don't like to sound preachy but I'm pretty sure a fair number of participants or skulkers appreciate hearing the feedback on what you think of a lens/camera even if it is just a bird thread, and the proof in the eating of the pudding, by way of the shot.  Without that, it's just another pretty picture.

Point taken (well taken!) about not including the camera and lens for my shot.  It's a 5Diii with a 400 DO and a 1.4X extender.  This isn't a lens forum so I won't say too much except that I think that the 400DO is one of the best kept secrets of Canon's lenses.  It is light, relatively compact, and ultra-sharp, and obviously mates well with the 1.4X extender.  When it came out about 10 years ago it got a very bad reputation, but if it had bugs back then it sure doesn't today.  I love that lens.

I wish I had humming birds in my backyard. Great shot. I am suffering from white lens shoulder and would not mind a light lens. Here is a 100% crop from my 5DIII with the 300mm f/2.8 II + 2xTC III at f/5.6, iso 320 1/6400. It is so sharp you can see the dragonfly in the beak of the little egret at about 40 metres, taken yesterday.

At a show I'm afraid, and the mouse was already dead.
It was snowing, freezing cold, and quite dark, but the show went on.

Had my camera next to me while drinking coffee in our backyard this morning when she shows up.  Female Costa's Hummingbird.

Wow, nice!

Hey Northstar, have you been shooting with your 300 2.8 and X2 III - what do you think of the combination?

Seems all I've got around here are a few stray Cedar Waxwings and ducks getting ready to fly south.

Don't think that's my duck, Serindipidy!  Anyway it's beautiful.

Here's my Blue winged Teal from an hour ago.  There is a family of 9 plus mom that grew up under my nose at the pond.

6D 300 X2 as usual.  I'd sure hate to be back at 420mm!

Yes, I can see they are different. Very nice. I'm getting envious of the 300L X 2 8)

This is the meanest woman I know. She sits here throughout the day and chases off the other hummingbirds and sometimes she even goes after the woodpeckers.

Spending a few days in Pamlico River, NC.  Took this with 5D3, 70-200 f2.8II, with a 2X II  trying to steel our fishing lure.
