I finally took the time to microadjust my 300mm 2.8 lens using the trusty yardstick/fluorescent tape method...here's a couple 800 px crops

As well as the litter collecting abilities of a GBH...gotta love the M&M candies.

Something seems off. Try doing AFMA using the 5% target from this article.

I printed on A4 and A3 for the wider and longer lengths. This is before I bought FoCal. I believe ML has AFMA tool built into it but I do not have the latest build. Waiting for the Alpha-4 to be released. They seem to be taking their time. One year and counting...

Yup. Lovely duck portraits.

Now you need to get a sequence of Harry Fischer actually fishing. Or is it that he fishes and then waddles up to your door and demands his picture be taken?

Taken earlier today with 7D, 100-400L @400mm, f/5.6, handheld.

The Pacific Golden Plover (Pluvialis fulva), known as Kolea in the Hawaiian language, is a frequent visitor to the Hawaiian Islands during the winter months. They are shore birds that fly long distances between wintering grounds and nesting grounds. Pacific Golden Plovers who winter in Hawai’i must fly over 3,000 miles non-stop to their nesting grounds in arctic Alaska or Siberia.

New subject this morning.  :) Very nice shots Serendipidy, and thanks for the information about the Kolea.
I agree with them, Hawaii is a great place to spend the winter.  8)

I find this to be a beautiful capture, and I love the look on the Goldeneye's face...."I'm cool" he says.

Thanks guys, I was very happy when this little guy climbed up on the waterlily leaf, with that one perfect flower and posed for me.
