    Mike,
    I am a big fan of Eiders and as a waterfowl hunter have pursued them off of the Maine coast in the dead of winter. I have taken Common Eider and have observed them many times, but I have never seen a King while hunting. These images are absolutely stunning. Great work.

    Cheers,
    Mikey ☘️

    I was reading about that very lens just last night.
    And the camera. According to what I read, the camera is one of the best with regard to auto focus on wildlife.
    I need better equipment. Been looking into 4/3's. The Olympus E-M1X with it's matching 300mm f4/f8 lens.
    The feature set and auto focus is insane. Just not sure about m43.
    But for now, I have to make do with what I have. If I live through this, maybe.

    But, back to you.
    You're dam good. Lots of these guys are, but you stood out today. Yes sir, you sure did.
    Much respect.
    L.S.6.

    I have nominated number 2 for photo of the month.
    Not sure it will stand because it was taken in 2017.
    But that's my pick. Good luck.
