Thanks! Yep, it was one of those lucky shots, I'd say.... Actually, I was on my lakefront balcony and because I had a sore ankle I wasn't walking around the lake with the camera the way I usually do. I hadn't used the 70-200 all that much yet, I'd only had it a short time, and so I was experimenting with it, learning more about the camera (which I'd only had for a couple weeks at that point) and about what the lens could do. It was a fun afternoon because it was one of the early warm days of spring and it seemed as though all the birdies were frolicking and putting on a show for my benefit! I have a lot of other shots from that day which I haven't post-processed yet. Anyway, I was shooting away, these two came zooming along and heading right for the water, so I aimed and fired.... bingo! I was very pleased that I captured them so neatly. When I saw the results, I knew right then and there that I'd made the right decision in buying the D70 and also that particular lens.
