wes242 , those are some awesome pics! What lens you shooting with? 100-400?
Thanks!
The Elk shot was with my 100-400, but the others were with the Canon 500mm f4. I sold it after I got married :facepalm: But at least it was to a friend who lets me borrow it here and there.

I miss that lens!

I've been thinking about picking up the 100-400 or picking up a 2x teleconverter for my 70-200 2.8 IS. I can only dream about the 500 f4....

I have a 70-200 2.8 non IS and used to have the 2x at the same time I had the 100-400 and both are sweet lenses. But the extender just didn't look as good as the 100-400mm. I have had that lens for 8 years now and it is worth it. I love the 70-200 also, but both just serve different purposes. I do a bit of landscape panos with the 70-200, I wish every lens looked as good as this one.

Good to know. The 70-200 is definitely a sweet lens.

here is a series of pelican shots I took a few years ago at Maho Bay, US Virgin Islands.
I really like pelicans, but they are so fast and somehow difficult to capture.
All pictures are taken with my old Nikon D40 and handheld.

Dang... You guys have posted some AWESOME shots here! That eagle coming off the elk carcass with a fist full of meat is my favorite I think.

I'll add a few of my best garden variety varmint pics:
