Really like them hoodlums. That wood pijun looks like he just lost his job.

One better not mess with them Wood pijuns.

I am afraid my 1DX has too much damn "reach", so even my 600mm lens is often way too long. Gotta swich gears to shorter lenses such as 400 and 500mm primes whenever I am using 1DX.

Hoodlums appear in our parts every fall. Some of them overwinter on lake Ontario, some move further south, I guess depending on the lake ice spread and fishing.

Handheld 1DX + 600 II, ISO 3200, NRd using the "Neat image".

"Hoodies" & "Woodies"...Peter, your ability to get close to wild birds is amazing...you'll need extension tubes next, if you don't already. Astounding portraits...

Here is an example of what happens when I approach ducks; these are blue-winged teal, I'm pretty sure (the patch of blue/gray on top of the wing gives it away), and I was going around them when they spooked...they gave me a few good fly-bys, though, waiting for me to vacate their resting grounds...
Also, a heron in the reeds...
All three with a 400 DO from the kayak.

Finally, a sunset reflection on the lake, with the 70-200 f/2.8L II...

Excellent imagery, Jerry. The first one reminds me of Shreeni's geese above, where detail and sharpness is not really important, but the ambiance of a natural place is nicely conveyed. "Birders" all to often photograph themselves into a blind alley populated by countless birds on a (set up) stick, and very little natural environment in there.

So Peter,

How little would you judge the deterioration in quality (sharpness, etc) if you shot these with the 400 II + 1.4X III rather than the 600. Just want to anticipate what I hope to achieve when the 400 II arrives later this week.

Nice as usual BTW.

Thanks, Peter; admittedly, I'd like some set-up, super-detailed avian portraits, just to hang and admire, but my stalking skills are so far limiting me to "environmental studies"...I have plans for my bird feeders this winter, at least...

If nothing else, captures like the "fly-by" above are able to put me (mentally) back in the boat on a chilly, foggy autumn morning, in the stillness and solitude of the deserted dawn lake...and that's no small thing!

Db, the difference in IQ is miniscule, so much so that I am not really sure which way it swings.

Mind you, 400 f/2.8 IS MkII + 1.4xTC MkIII has better AF performance than bare 600 II. However, that is a "secret" I am not allowed to discuss.

Well, I am quite anxious to join this secret society, assuming that ownership is the price of revelation.

I may have cheated a bit, but not much.. The nature is 100% Norwegian mountain autumn, but the marathon man is 100% Oslo Marathon, summer 2011..
