@McTool, nice pic's of the wattle bird. They are such fast movers. The first one grabbed me for some reason (colour and background blur perhaps), as much as the BIF pic is more difficult :)

Thanks Click and Mr Bean. The BIF was a fluke, but a nice one, the fast focus of the 500 helped, but I had actually focused while the bird was still and thats probaly why its slightly oof.
My favorite is the second pic, but yeah that first one is very nice too, there are several more from that sequence as the bird hopped along that branch looking for grubs to eat.

Dolina... they are really great photos... showing (off!) very well the wonderful poential of that lens.
Thanks for sharing... good job on them.  I love the colours and depth of field you've used.  Will look at some more of your photos on flickr when I have more time (I'm in my lunch break at work).

McTool - welcome! I really like your bird shots with the 500L too. Autumn a bit over a year ago (March 2012) here in in Adelaide, SA, I took several photos of Wattle Birds, New Holland Honeyeaters and a Willy Wagtail - that patiently allowed me to get quite close to them. I had my 70-300mm L (so won't post on this thread).  I was happy how many BIF of mine worked out.

Thanks for sharing all, and I look forward to more photos from Canon's amazing 500mm L f/4 L lens. I would be very tempted to get the 200-400mm L f/4 1.4x lens for wildlife & birding, I think it would do a great job (I love the flexibility of zoom lenses often when outdoors taking photos of aspects of nature - eg landscapes, wildlife, birds, etc).

Cheers

Paul
I'm not a brand-fanatic. What I do appreciate is using my 7D and 350D cameras along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.
