    Hi Gary,
    Looking good.
  3. Great shot. I really admire you bird shooters. What lens and body?
  4. Hey Thanks Gilles

    I was just playing with a new camera.

    This was shot with a Canon 1D MKIII and a Canon 500/4 +1.4TC

    This is just a test shooting, Nothing serious

    Nothing serious? You have to be kidding! those are awesome shots. Those birds usually thumb their beaks at me as they fly by. Wonderful shots.
  6. Hey Thanks Mike

    They are very Plentiful here and don't seem to be Shy!!! These were with Harsh light and really just a couple test shots!!!
  7. How'd ya like the canon?
  8. Hey David

    It is almost like Cheating the shots seem so easy to make!!! It is FASSSSST and locks on Focus even while panning
  9. Hi Gary

    great shots, glad to see the mk3 is working

    A friend of mine is having all sorts of trouble with his, its been back to Canon twice now and its still a POS, in AI servo tracking mode its shocking.

    best wishes

  10. Thanks Colin, Sorry about your Friend, I've only had mine out once and most of that was setting functions as it seem to shoot a bit different than my 40D

  11. I sincerely hope yours is ok Gary as it could be a great camera.

    I had one and it was the reason, after about 18 years with Canon, that i made the move and switched to Nikon.

    best wishes

  12. very nice, gary
    i like these shots
    well done
