  6. Wow! The trip was worth the effort it seems. I'm shocked. These are just wonderful! Which focal length & shutter speed?
     
  7. Nice Phlip don't you love that 800? I am on my second one. Great lens for special photography. These look great.

    The second one is my favourite, such a difficult bird to capture, well done!
