ira96, thanks for your very nice comments. I just bought a new 70mm~300mm telephoto lens. I have never done 300mm photography, this is got to be beginner's luck. Regards, David

阿鹏-worapong, thank you for your very kind words. You will notice all my bird shots have substantial "earth" in them. I am aiming for Google Earth acceptance for them. Best regards, David
