  4. Priceless shot! LOL. I love it. I love how he is looking down at
    you. I'm glad you weren't in his rear area. "Look out below"!!
    "PLOP". LOL. And I know you don't use a UV filter.
    Bret, you have definitely outgrown your fabulous 20D. I wish I could
    master my photographic talents such as you.

  5. Priceless shot! I love how he is looking up at you.
    You definitely have mastered your skills with the 20D and wildlife.
    Good thing you weren't below him. Your lens might have had a special
    delivery from the heron. And I know you don't use a UV filter.
    Lovely shot!

  6. BTW: I'm not giving you a jab because you don't use a UV filter. I'm
    with you! Besides, with the L series lenses, why cover up what you
    paid big bucks for.

    People that use L glass with UV filters probably have their couches
    covered in clear plastic.

    I do have filters on my large front lenses (72mm) as scratch avoidance
    but they are the high quality Minolta or B+W UV filters. On my 300
    f/2.8 it is a 114mm piece of flat, neutral optical glass.

    My 100 mm f/2.8 has never had a filter on it (other than for effects),
    the front element is so deep (unless shooting macro) from the threads as
    to be immune to all but the most determined attack.

  13. Or, they put "bras" on the front ends of their cars, so after they drive
    them for 100,000 miles and trade them in, someone else can enjoy the shiny
    chrome grill work.......

    When I got my new Altima back in '92 it was the first new car I ever
    owned. I was really gonna pamper that baby and keep it all waxed and
    shiny. And I did, at least for the first 50,000 miles.
    Now it's got 180,000+ and it's beat all to hell.

    When my car was new I splurged for the $100 bra to keep the bugs from
    scratching the paint. Only trouble was the damn thing was a bitch to
    stretch on there and it started leaving a line where the sun would
    fade the exposed paint.
