  2. Great shots, Keith. The 3rd one looks like he's smiling at you. Very nice!

    Exxxxxcellent shots Keith, but I thought we agreed that you weren't going to post any more shots with this lens. 8)

    Seriously, these are very good, and you are right, they are very quick little devils. Were all of these taken with the 400 2.8?

    Those ducks elude me. Forget those for me.
    I'll take a "sittin duck"

    Mallard colors are tough.

    Nice, love the 3rd shot,

    so, you're shooting these with a tripod, right? Isn't that 400 f2.8 a heavy monster?
  6. Frank

    Well Frank, these were all with my 12-24mm, they were all flying very close :wink: Seriously 400mm f2.8 with no TC...........man I find that 200-400mm would come in handy- either Im too short, too far and sometimes you luck out.........but I really really like this lens!!! Just now just starting to get use to this animal 8) [/quote]
  7. Thanks Gale and Kevin, appreciate the comments!
  8. Hi Steven

    Hi Steven, I normally use a tripod but these shots were with my monopod, little more challenging but easy to move around. Yep 11 pound lens is not light, but its my workout :lol: :lol:
