Excellent examples of what can be done with that somewhat under-rated lens.

@ Alve and napo. Thanks a lot guys!

@ Turerkan. Thanks a lot and a big.. ;o)

@ Brettania, a special thank you to you! I believe your heart is bleeding just as much as mine for these beautiful 'Lords of the Sky'.

I've got some more pictures of the little fellow that are waiting for PP, will post here later on.

I'm so glad to tell you that the little falcon is doing allright. I got an e-mail from the rescue team this morning and they were happy to tell me that he is eating with an apetite, gaining weight and is feeling generally good. They will call me when it's time to set the bird free so I can take some pictures of the release.

Champion capture -- I have not seen such a shot before with one of Australia's great icons in the background. Can you get the bird to do a flypast of the Opera House and Ayres Rock as well?

@ Carsten -- one of the best puffin shots I have seen.

Thanks Mate. If only a flyby was that easy to arrange hey.

That shot actually picked up a POTW at Steve Parish's Photograph Australia website this week too, so I was pretty happy with that.


Cheers,
Dave

Bit of a cheat this one, as I shifted the position of the bird :-)
