For sure! thanks to all!

A recent waxwing having a "drink".  Other than chickadees and downys that's about all we have around here right now!

6D  300 F2.8 II X2 III 1250th F7.1  ISO 800

Am seriously thinking of the 70-200 F2.8 II to fill the gap I have below the 300 2.8.  I know there have been some threads recently on this lens with and without the two extenders - can someone who's been following it give me some links - please and thank you. ;)

Serious think turned into serious irrational action today, so no need to respond about the 70-200 2.8.  Sure is a heavy lens!  I guess that means you get your money's worth.  ;)  Got it for just over $2200 CAD which right now would be about $2100 USD, so I'm pleased.

Awesome shot - I can't believe you were so close.  All of the night herons I've run into are really shy.

Philippine Serpent Eagle (Spilornis holospilus) by alabang, on Flickr

The Philippine Serpent Eagle (Spilornis holospilus) is an eagle found in  the major islands of the Philippines. It is sometimes treated as a race  of the Crested Serpent Eagle (Spilornis cheela). This species is  usually found in forest clearings, open woodlands, and sometimes in  cultivated lands with scattered trees.

It is endemic to the Philippines. The species is found on most part of  the major islands, except for Palawan. It inhabits primary and secondary  forest. The bird is often seen soaring over clearings and river  valleys. The bird feeds on amphibians, reptiles and other live prey. The  Philippine serpent eagle is distinguished from other species of serpent  eagle by more well-defined spots on the underpants and wings.
