    Pretty good for hand held. I take that these are at your soon to be sold lake cabin? Too bad you'll have to settle for just exotic waders and shore birds from now on.... :lol:

    Not at the cabin, Frank,

    they were shot at my main house, where I have a 4 acre pond. I've got these guys around all the time. Some guy caught an 8lb Large Mouth Bass out of the pond the other day!
     
  8. Great captures, Steve. Flying birds are NOT easy to get good clear shots. Keep up the good work.
