What do I think of the 400 DO?  I love the lens, it's relatively light and portable and razor sharp.  I think that it was unfairly maligned when introduced 10 years ago and has never lived down the initial bad reviews.  I've had mine for a year and never regretted the purchase.

Love the detail in no 4, food flying, cool. Great shots, only get to see these in cages, and the cages can never be big enough!  :'(

Wonderful image tom parker Islander scyrene James and Colin


Coppersmith (Megalaima haemacephala) by alabang, on Flickr

Excellent details, Paolo. I immediately recognized this juvenile as a barbet, having recently seen and shot a Taiwan Barbet (M. nuchalis) for the first time while hiking in the hills.

A couple of other birds I shot recently:

The Island Thrush was shot in a thin fog, handheld, while hiking.

nineyards, just realized you're very close to me (Ardrossan).  Edmonton must have one of the best river valleys around.  Very nice shot.  My pair of Pileated haven't been around for over 2 weeks now.
