    This 1st one was shot @1/200th,so that may be the culprit right there. There rest were much faster. Allshot w/D2X/200-400/tc 1.7, so 650mm.

    Very nice Steve. The honkers are very sharp. I think you are right on the mallard. 1/200th is way too slow for these guys. Heck, 1/640th is too slow. 8)

    BTW, did you get the check?

    I don't know I kind of like that effect on the Mallard, makes him look like a big humming bird!!

    I like the cows with wings too, we have enough of them around I should start shooting some :lol:
  7. Love the last shot, thanks for sharing =)
