Happy anniversary everyone, specially to the "big boss" and Devil's adjutant, Curtis
I was involved by this amazing thread at mid 2011, reading some 3-5 pages each night, until I defeated my natural shyness and posted my first images near the end of 2011.
My main subjects are birds, but I also love to experiment several other subjects as landscapes, macros and bokeh playing (Curtis again the main culprit! ); and this thread is an excellent source to learn with so many talented photogs.
This is my humble contribution: telephoto lens porn!
Unfortunatelly I had no time to shot at 12:43h over here, just tonight I managed to capture my 3 most beloved MF lenses (for birding):
Hoods not extended, "dorsal view":

Nikkor 400mm f/5.6 K factory ai'd ED non-IF; Nikkor 600mm f/5.6 AI-S IF-ED; Nikkor 800mm f/5.6 AI-S IF-ED.
Taken with D600 + Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 AI-S hand held, ISO 500, f/2 at 1/60s, flash + diffuser.
Far from the best background (my library), but anyway this is my humble contribution.
To follow I will repost some of my best bird shots with each one of these lenses.
