...better portrait than BIF (I think).

For those of you who wonder what I look like, here is a birds eye view of my grandson and me by a Peregrine Falcon, my wife and me by a Great Horned Owl and by the Falcon.

I don't like the skin colors of the people:mad:!
Jokes asides - very good job Alan!! I'm jealous for the Peregrine - here we are happy to get one siting per year (and I mean just siting...)!

Here is a tribute to the amazing 100-400mm II with a 1.4xTC on a 5DSR. A pair of spoonbills, which are very rare in the UK, turned up at the local Wetland Trust at Welney. They were about 80-100m away from the hide but I got a tolerable image of them - the birds occupy just 0.3mpx of the 50mpx sensor of the 5DSR. At the other extreme, a veritable close up of a tree sparrow feeding its fledgling on the way to the car park.

V nice Alan. You're always reminding me of my MP shortfall. I'm aiming at a second camera in the near future (perhaps mirrorless) and hopefully it'll be good AND have at least 30 MP and weigh less than I'm used to. Not complaining but ... you know.

I sure love having 800mm capability though. It's been a nice step up from 600! Maybe a second camera with a 100-400, hmm.
