You've couldn't have waited for a ripe one to come along?

;)

Nicely captured; tack-sharp, well exposed, good "poses"!

they never turn ripe do they...

first time trying a borrowed tc17e ii, im not sure I will buy one or not, while it did work pretty well, AF was not as accurate. still 850mm handholding well, I really needed more light. tired a few few is VR and 1/320sec but I don't think i could hold it that still, its amazing what the difference a 1.7x converter makes the lens to hand hold, not only the added focal distance, but the 2 inches longer really makes the lens seem heavy.

i may just like the lens by itself and a tighter crop better, this is 500mm at f4, with a tighter crop.

Very nice shots. Nothing wrong with the inflight shot that I can see.

We have a few Green Herons around here but the closest I've managed to get to one was barely close enough to tell what it was ;)
