    Very nice Tom. I especially like the Gulls, and the Pelican just before splashdown. Brings back happy memories of my last couple of trips to the beach. :wink:
     
  3. Tom, what lens did you use for these? I like #3 and #4.

    Virginia,

    I used my brand spanking new, used 300 AFS F4 with the 1.4 TC for the last two. That is one fun lense. I expect the other two were with the 70-200.

    Thanks for your comments.

    I was wishing one of those gulls would turn around and face me. Perhaps then I could have sold it to a card company, for some clever saying. ;-)

    Thanks for your comments Gilles and Hans.
