    Went shooting early this morning, and I get back and there are a ton of excellent birdie / animal posts. This series is certainly right up at the top. My favorites are the last two Egret shots and the Mantis, but they are all very good.

    Gotta upload and post a couple myself now. :smile:
  3. Ben looking at your wonderful shots with the witty captions is always a delight for me.

    I'm not sure it was great but I would not have wanted to do anything else, and I did get a couple keepers ............ No your right is was a great day !!:biggrin: :biggrin:
  10. Love the background colors in the first one, Ben! So, how'd you like the 1.7? Don't seem to notice much loss of quality in these.

    Hey Brett nice seeing you again yesterday, fun time, we sure made the folks on Burbank Blvd. pay attention :biggrin: :biggrin:

    I'm still on the fence about both. I've noticed a WB shift :confused:  and I need to use that 1.7 more, right off it's slower to focus lock so I need to work on my technique here.

    Evening Kevin
    I'm liking the extra reach for sure, but there is a price to pay. I think I can work it out, just have to get used to it mainly.
