    Great series Mayo! Can't wait to see more from your floating hide they will be some outstanding images I'll bet:biggrin:
  17. Thanks Mr. Thiel for the kind words.

    Thanks Andreas. Still torn as to whether to order the 500 or 600 mm for the D3. The weight of the 600 bothers me:biggrin:

    Thanks buddy.

    Thank you Tipster! Don't worry, it's been real quiet here....spooky quiet.

    Thanks Shekhar.

    Thanks Fred. Nah, I only shoot on the week-ends, wish I could do it everyday but then I'd get bored.:biggrin:

    Thanks Kees.

    Thanks Caleb.

    They used to be for me too until I got this opportunity. Thanks Alex.

    Thanks Jordon.

    Thanks Phil. Well, it all depends on the birds, next year they might not even frequent this little pond.

    Thanks Louie.

  18. Great series! love the enter and exit shots, better? wow can;t wait until next year!

    Thanks for sharing.
