The triple threat: Flies, Swims, and Walks. Does none very well, though it's good at fishing. This one was scared by the sight of my 13lb 400/2.8 af-i.
Hope you enjoy it!

Nick:
Would love a lighter lens but for the dollar, hard to beat the af-i's. $3k vs $7k for afsII. Ugly, heavy, but works. Now using a 1.7 tc with it and does well at f/6.3 or smaller in bright light.
One of my friends has the afsII and it's amazingly small and light by comparison.
Thanks for the comment and good shooting....

Gale - thanks
This bird spooks easily. When cruising the local lake, all you can see is the neck and head. It dissapears to catch fish for a while, popping up in a new spot fairly far away. In order to take off, it patters and flaps frantically. Flies with much effort - no gliding.
All the best
