went out this morning with the 200-400. God I'm tired! It sure does work fine with the 1.4x on it.

this guy was far away, and even at 550mm this is cropped. This shot would have been easier with a tripod:

someone told me about an osprey nest in Port St. Lucie, and I found this osprey building a nest. Too bad I overexposed by 1/2-3/4 a stop :(

I'll go back in the afternoon, it was getting too hot to lug that big rig around. I need a nap.

Hey, Harris, get original, willya? How about The Monster, Godzilla Glass, or The Blob?

Nice shots Haris. So what do you think?
Well, these were with the 1.4x. Definitely more reach, and the VR can be a lot of help when the shutter speeds arent where you'd like them. Wouldnt mind at all if Santa put one of these in my stocking, but it would have to be a big stocking. :D

Does it seem I am going backward instead of foward :<(

Heh. That itsy-bitsy puny hunk o' glass could be called "The Littlest Beast" if he wants...

It's the 200-400mm AFS/VR being shot handheld that separates the men from the boys and the women from the girls (note that last comment, Gaye). It's just one of those things - indisputable, incontrovertible, factual. To conquer the 200-400mm is be part of a special group, the Band of the Beast® !

By the look that the osprey give you in #3, I was sure that he was telling you to move aways or else he would come down to beat you with the stick.

Awesome osprey shots. I have yet to figure out how not to blow out the white on the top of the head and keep everything well exposed............... really nicely done Harris. Sounds like you are already getting to close to that new little beast, you know you want it!!! That VR definitely would be nice

Harris, there is one thing you can count on. With shots like this, UF may end up having a serious case of "Godzilla" lust.
Virginia, it's not gonna happen. I'm a large guy, and can benchpress 275 pounds, but I'm not strong enough to carry the
200-400VR. I'll leave that to Gaye 8).
