Well that will humble a guy. Ron those are great. But what made me just plain drool was that ring necked pheasant. What color! The bug is pretty darn fantastic as well. I almost didn't notice the puffin ;-)

Ron, very impressive and inspirational. I just got a 300 2.8 AFS-II and took it out today to practice. I don't think my images were very sharp, but I will keep trying.

Ron, those eagle shots remind me of the mental image I have had of eagles ever since I was a little kid. It is straight out of "America the Beautiful". Looking at the second picture, I think it is the background environment that really sets it apart for me.

Thanks so much for sharing these! It is enough to make me want to become a birder.

The eagles are spectacular but I have to say the Ring Necked Pheasant's color are breath taking. Wll done Ron! Was the loon taken at our seminar in Oct 2005?

Thank you for sharing this series of images with us Ron. This series is absolutely stunning in it's quality and our membership will surely benefit by seeing what is possible to capture if in the right location at the right time with the proper equipment.
