    Thanks Noworyz,
    I believe that is the first shot I took with my beloved Nikkor 300mm f4.

    Can't agree more, Raindog: perfect first photo, welcome to the forum, do send more.

    And say thanks to that pelican from my part for holding still and "posing" for you, so you could get this absolutely crisp picture with all the skin and feather textures and the little drop at the tip of its beak.

    And thanks to the sun for shining such lovely light on it, too! :)
