    The light this week has been aweful, as I am sure my friends from Ontario will agree.. but, it's a good chance to test the VR on my lens.. and it seems to work well...

    These are all so sharp and well focused, but #5...wow! That is one of the best pictures I've seen in a while, the industrial scence with the billowing clouds, the perfect reflection, and the bird. Great job, just stunning :thumbup:

    thanks so much!

    Jon, these are all true wild shots, I prefer to be out in the real world, but the odd visit to fantasy land at Skyhunters is fun too. VR = Vibration Reduction.. Nikons equal to Canons IS... Inmage Stabalization concept. It really makes a huge difference in low lighting situations.

    Normally, at 400mm, you need at least 1/500 sec to have a half decent shot without a tripod.. but with this lens, you can shoot the same shot at 1/60 and gain in iso, or aperature, and it still is sharp. You can even hear this thing working inside the lens if you are in a quiet room.

    Next, I need a 800 prime, with VR.. (some day)!

    The one where the bussard (hawk) looks straight at you is amazing. A wild one at that! Too cool. They would never let me approach them, ever!

    But my favourite one is your Photo 6.
    I just love it!

    thanks everyone! LaFoto.. the buzzard is a Coopers Hawk., and most of these hawks are very easy to approach, at one point I was about 15 feet away from it.

    here is another from this morning

    i have gotten that close to some wild halks too, i think they are very sure of themselves. After all they dont have much to be afraid of.

    very lovely bird shots :thumbup:

    Great work Raymond. At least one of is getting some action ;) The weather is really getting me down but I hope we get some sun after I get my new lens this week. I was out this morning for a few hours and saw nothing. Lots of Owl sightings recently but they were hiding from me today.
