One of the female Ringed Necked Ducks on her takeoff run. For those interested this was with the R3 / RF600 w/1.4x and not cropped. I'm very impressed with the close in tracking.

Beautiful pictures. I especially like the first one.

:)! I'm very happy with the second one!
There is no way you will know it's my first black-tailed Red-footed Booby - all others were white tailed!
Doesn't matter - one day I will get good photo of the Black-masked ( :rolleyes: - may be?!) On other hand the fun of hunting is there and for me it's the most important/entertaining thing concerning the bird's photos!

Following up the shot of the female, one of the many shots of the male Ring-necked Duck picking up speed for flight.

Nice shot. Do you hand hold or use a tripod for these?

These were on a tripod as I try to find a spot and stay still until something of interest happens. Would sit in the water in a dry suit if they would let me, lol. I did get some shots of a Merlin handheld with this setup a couple of weeks ago. Wish I'd had the R5 on the lens for that just for the extra pixels.

Our neighbor has been erratically feed the birds and squirrels, so with a half dozen Bluejays, I thought it was time to try some nearby BIF training. No matter what lens, boy do I want to crop the results! IMG_4944 again.jpeg
