How is hand holding the 600 going for you? Great shots even with the distance.I also had the pleasure of watching a few Hooded Mergansers a few days ago. One of the males came up with a decent sized Bullhead. It was a little bit of a struggle for him to get it down, but eventually he did. He was rather far away, maybe 100 yards or so.

Waterfowl are still moving through my area and more are arriving each day. The past couple days were two of my favorites. Wood Duck and Ring-necked Duck. It's usually dark and gloomy by me in early spring, and it has been exactly that lately. 7D mkll / EF600 F4 ll / 1.4xlll
Thank you! The majority of the time I'm on a tripod. I used to hand hold the 500, and I've done the same with the 600, since its essentially the same weight as 500. It's a lot more balanced and it is way easier to hand hold. Most of the flying eagle and hawk shots I've posted in the other thread are hand held, only because when driving around, there's no time to get tripod out and ready. It does make for a long day thoughHow is hand holding the 600 going for you? Great shots even with the distance.
