Nice series, luftfluss, and good variety of subjects. They all look good to me, especially the 4th. Looks like the A 400/5.6 + 1.4x-L combo is serving you well. How long have you had the 400mm? I've read a lot of good things about both the A and L. My long combo is the A*300mm + 1.7x af.

I'm familiar with the development up north. I started visiting the area in the early 60s, last visit several years ago.
I'm coming up on one year with the 400mm. A couple years prior to that I shot mostly Tak 200's & 300mm, so the bulk of my recent wildlife shooting has been MF. Great lenses all - sharp and wonderful feel - but plenty of CA and must be more mindful of the light than with modern glass.

Which 300mm do you have - the 2.8 or 4? Either way, I'm envious!

In front of the Visitor's Centre..


Photographers in the Spruce Bog Trail parking lot. I wonder if that guy on the left has noticed all those women have bigger lenses (not that size matters) . Those Sigma an Tamron 150-600s are getting to be real popular. In this group , approx. 4 of 12 shooters were using them, and all women (you dudes keep that in mind next time you complain about the weight of those lenses. Not only were they carrying them, they were using them hand held.). In my picture 2 of the 5 had them. The tall skinny girl's is unseen behind her legs hanging on some kind of lanyard.
Sturdy Canadian stock, eh?

What a shot. Adorable little critter.

I actually have two: A*300mm f4 and DA 300mm F4. Both great lenses. I use the A with the 1.7x af and the DA by itself. The A is extremely light and compact, it mates well with the adapter.

Nice lenses! I hope to acquire a 300/4 or /2.8 someday...

Extraordinary capture on the eagle. That is as good and better than hundreds of images of eagles I have seen over the decades.

A couple from my travels today. A Great Horned owl and a hawk, possibly rough legged or broadwinged.
That black belly makes it a Rough-leg (female or immature). Broad-wings are in South America at this time of year.

Leucistic juvenile Bald Eagle in Delta today
That plumage may fall within the normal range of variation in 3-year old (immature) Bald Eagles, rather than being leucistic.

Like this shot a bunch. Some birders would pass up the opportunity because the bird's body is obstructed, but I think it's a cool and unique photo.

I thought so as well, but there have been several ornithologists who have agreed that this is a leucistic baldie. A friend has photo's of it from last year and it seems it's plumage lightens with age. Can't wait to see what she (?) looks like at 5 years old!
