Good to know you're still giving that Tokina a workout. I still remember the Alaska shots!

Thanks Ted, and you remember the Alaska photos!

That Tokina is my most used lens.. if it ever breaks I have no idea what I'll do since it is almost impossible to find anything like it. Here is hoping to a new 400mm prime coming out sometime

That's one beautiful bird, and the lens is great, too!

Down here we have the amzing Scissor-Tailed Flycatchers, along with some Western Kingbirds!
