Thanks, Chiara. They always look a little angry due to the cold eyes, but I think it's a beautiful bird :)

Thanks, Marian. It's Nikon's 300mm F/4 prime lens: [link] I couldn't afford the top model (F/2.8) which costs four times as much, but I'm quite happy with this one anyway :)

Sweet! f2,8 is only one stop faster, with your D700 you can compensate with ISO so IMHO it's not worthed to pay 4 times as much for the top model. This one is extremely sharp and nevertheless a great lens!

That's right, and I don't complain at all :)

Here's a secondhand 300mm Canon lens for you: [link] The price is still a bit spicy though ;)
