    What sort of thoughts? ;)

    Dawn yes there are definite advantages - I have a few of us all flying the vuilture but it wasn't easy as I had a leather glove in one hand whilst I was doing it.

    Ducky most of these were shot with the 100-400 Canon L - worth every single solitary penny I spent on it - the only drawback is that now I have the opportunity to get pretty up close and personal to some of the wildlife out there there are occasions when the 100mm end is too long and I have to take a few steps away from the subject to get focus

    Thnk some of these were taken with the 24-105 L - the castle definitely was and I thought one of the duck ones was as well
