    I was practicing with my cactus v4's the other day and was far enough away so that a bird landed on my flash and, well, you can see.

    you think that's bad - just ask the kingfisher photographers - the number of times they set everything up all ready and hidden for that little bird to appear - then the darn thing goes and lands on their flash or lens! ;)

    Oh my. The bird was sitting on the flash when it went off. It scared the crap out of the bird literally. LOL Hey at least it wipes off. :)
