    I decided on a D200 BTW. Can't wait to try the 300 1.4/1.7 combo with it.

    Very nice capture Jeff. I always enjoy shots that document species behavior. The more I learn, the more good shots that I can get. :smile:

    BTW, I remember Jan & Dean all too well. :biggrin:

    Jeff,
    Great combo
    D200 and 300f4
    Way to go

    I need to get a tc for my 300 f4
    and my 70-300 and my 80-400...lolol

    Believe it or not, even though I have a big overlap there, they all have thier own purpose.

    I think the 3rd Law of NAS is that thou shall not have overlapping focal lengths -

    Just lovely, I have read that some of these are in my area. I would love to locate them.

    Thanks. I am very lucky to live in Oregon. From Eagles to shore birds, we are so rich in natural wildlife. I hope you find them, the green on the male is so dark you have to close to see it, but if the sun is shinning - just like a shamrock.

    We are seeing some beautiful species here, but I think that they are moving on sooner than I would appreciate.
