  3. Harris,

    Nice captures!! You managed to get pretty close in that last one! :)  :)  Do you use a ball head on the monopod or have you gone to a swivel arrangement like the RRS web page recommends?

    Thanks for sharing.
     
  4. Gee, you got to be real close. Incredibly sharp despite the use of the extension. The details and the composition in #2 are exceptional.
     
  5. Very nice so it seems the 1.7 is plenty sharp on the 300... the plot thickns! :wink:

  7. Re: Hi Harris

    I have to wait a bit before I can get one :( 
    It's like candy, which one? I'd like them all. Dunno yet. Have a while to think.
     
  8. Thanks Christian, this guy was drying off and posing for us. I missed the flight shot. Shooting 500mm on a monopod isnt easy.
     
  9. At that canoe launch in the Savannah preserve. I go off to find a raptor that buzzed over us, I come back and mary is shooting away with the D100 and 17-55

    So I started far and worked my way up
     

  10. yes, this does make things tougher. Would love the versatility of a 200-400 with the speed and sharpness of the 2.8
