Wow! That's pretty much exactly how I eat shrimp! *gulp*gulp*gulp* More?

Nice series. Love the crisp, bright light, clarity and colors. Bokeh ain't bad, either! ;-)

I know your kind, you bribed that bird with the shrimp so he would turn just right for the light. Beautiful shots!

Over the years, I've posted some coastal birds devouring prey. I've never captured anything even approaching what you've done here - these are simply wonderful.

Saw these in the 300mm club too. They are really stunning. The lighting, background, crispness. Well, well done.

You should get it. You'll love it. I got mine in December, and the only time it has come off of the camera was to put the 1.4TC on/off.

You are a magician! Perfectly capture a moment, and workshops on implementation of the pictures!
