I had the pleasure of going out with Frank yesterday where we went on a hike through the forest preserve to a spot where he's found these huge beautiful birds. I have to say that this was a first for me catching a bird of such in flight. Although we were both shooting from monopods we were literally hand holding both the lenses and monopods. I have the 300mm AF-S Mk I and boy that sucker got real heavy, real quick. Yikes what a chore. I realized very quickly that I was totally out of my comfort zone. Give me a baseball/football field any day anytime. :smile: Thanks a bunch Frank, I had a ball.
