    I have the musculature ~flexes~ of a pillow and the body shape of a pear. Yes, a tripod and gimbal head is on the list of things to pick up in Jan. 2014. I'll just have to suffer and use the Manfrotto 680B monopod for the time being.

    Here's a curious Southern White-faced Scops Owl chick... ~edited~ to remove photo.
    The owl is adorable. Emiel. I've always loved owls. Stay tuned for "snowys" come late November. That's what we have kicking around the Boundary Bay area in North America.

    From Boundary Bay Regional Park in January


    A Northern Pintail


    file mislabelled, I believe these are Greater Scaups, owing to the plumage coloration.

    and a raptor.


    A northern harrier at full wingspread. It came on me and my 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII (which was what I was using back then - I got the 600mm in June) and I barely had time to react.

    Funny how owls are symbols of wisdom, but their chicks look dumb as toast. :-)

    Went out to my favorite park today with my "monster" lens.


    The osprey before he dug into the meal.


    Cuteness overload.


    My lens on my monopod: The pride and joy of my lens collection - the AF-S II 600mm f/4 D IF-ED.

    attached image below. My big lens must have freaked out the poor osprey because he was looking at me with a clear expression that said "WHAT THE HELL IS THAT???!!!"

    Why have so many photos been removed from this thread if they are the posters property ?

    I see the majority of photos on the thread. 4 broken links does not constitute many.

    If you are lucky enough to do it on a sunny day, the views when flying into SeaTac airport are the best you will get anywhere in the US.

    Here is a picture taken from the plane last week of Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Ranier:

    superhorn, that would be everything man-made.
    Has it struck you that the music which is regarded as the most sublime in western civilization, which is the music of Bach, is called baroque? ~ Pierre Schaeffer

    Baroque is all you need to know about my musical tastes.
