    Mike..

    There isn't one of these that shouldn't be considered exceptional...great work :)
     
  3. Hey Mike you have really done well with your vacation shots. Image #2 is quite unusual and really makes one take a second look. All are excellent.

    the 1st one is real crisp
    but I really dig the second, it's almost as if he's yelling, "Hey buddy speed up or get the H.....ll out of my way" !! :lol:
     
  5. WOW!!! Mike those are fantastic pictures. That combo is great. Is the 200-400VR a hard lens to handle? Do you use a Mono Pod, tripod, or hand hold? Thanks for sharing.

    Great shots, Mike! The second one is exceptional and looks like the higher bird is balancing on the wingtip of the lower bird. Nice captures!

    Excellent Shots Mike, Besides #1, I find #7 interesting with the color contrast with that pale blue sky vs bird and green. nice change of pace.
