Another beauty, Janine! Love that blue! Congratulations!

Inspired by your beautiful bird photography, I recently tried to buy the Canon 400mm lens from B&H when I bought my 5D (I wanted the 1 DS Mark2 but couldn't afford it). They recommended I get the 70-200mm 2.8 lens with an extender because I do wedding photography mostly and they knew I had limited funds. I haven't had a chance to try it on birds yet. I'll let you know how it works! Not as well as yours, I'm sure -- but I'm hoping to catch a few backyard birds. And I REALLY want to catch Spirit (Auburn University's eagle) flying before one of the games.

Janine,
I completely LOVE your wildlife shots! Thank you for your comments in my gallery, I'm honored you even look at my stuff!
I think that 400mm lens treats you well, you do beautiful work and I'm completely jealous of this Stellar Jay shot...... how gorgeous is that Jay?!!!!
Thanks so much for sharing your talent.
Regards,
Karen
