    Super shots. The first two are my favorites. It's like you can reach out for the little bird. They are extremely sharp and detailed and great bokeh. The 300mm?
     

  4. Thanks Dianne.
    Thanks Torben. Yes the first two were with the 300mm f4 with a 1.7 TC.
    The geese were with the 70-200 vr I believe.

  7. Sounds like a deal Gale. But I might have to go to florida and you might have to come to Thunder Bay.

    Thanks Anthony.

    ICE ON WATER?

    Great setup, and I was only too happy to take advantage of it! :cool: 

    Very nice photograph of you local visitors - how did you get so close to the Dee?
     
  9. Thanks Nick...this was taken at 500 mm using the nikon 300mm f /4 with the 1.7 TC. I just set up beside a neigbouring scotchpine with a tripod, sitting on a camp chair and a bottle of Cervesa at my side.
