Best wishes for a speedy recovery, and kudos to a supportive wife! With photos this beautiful and sharp, I think you can easily wait a bit longer to carry that big lens by yourself! Very well captured!

Too many firsts to keep up with but each one rates a hearty congrats.
Howard, I would love to know how much noise reduction you did on the 1600 to 3200 iso shots if any. They really look clean on my laptop.
Congrats and nice to have a lens caddy!

Great shots. It is great that now a days we can comfortably let the ISO run up into these ranges without any real degradation to the image. Just imagine trying to keep the shutter speeds up if you could only comfortably go to ISO 800 like on some of the bodies from only a few years ago.

A wife that lets you buy a D4 and carry it for you? Does she have a sister?
Great to hear you out and about. Continue to heal.
Thanks for sharing your shots.

Excellent set Howard! Looks like the new rig suits you quite well, especially since you don't have to pack it around

Great images, Howard.
#2 and #3 look like an angry wren. (An angry wren?).
And it's a brave man indeed who takes his wife on a snipe hunt .
