....... thanks...... and I am still looking, but it may take me a bit as I am doing some industrial shooting in the next few days. Nothing exciting just some exteriors of some bridges, traffic passovers, and some exit's off express ways. this work pays for all the new lens....... well someone has to do it :lol: :lol:

you bethcha, but nobody can get it done faster,and be back in time to post a duck good on you Big Pix. I am oh, so sorry, that work has reared it's ugly head.

But glad you are spending on lenses. Will wait for the next installment of
feathers. I know b. has a goose picture or two that might work well...
