    Excellent pics:>))
    Love the expressions on 11 and 12
     
  4. Thanks Gale I really like the fact that with IS on 700mm you can shoot off a monopod and take still or flight. I made up my mind about a year ago that I would not buy another glass unless it had stablezation on it. I can and have hand held this combo for short times (I am 76) but prefer the monopod even over a tripod

  8. Hi Alex thank you for the look. I find them pretty easy if I stay out of sight at the swamp area I go to. The ones I set up at the feeder I just shoot from a window blind. They will get a little shakey at the feeder after they hear the shutter click but if their hungry it won't matter they come back.
