Black Oystercatcher and chicks

I had the opportunity to try out our 500mm lens to photograph this Black Oystercatcher family. Don set me up and I had a wonderful time watching these attentive parents bring food to their youngsters again and again. Even using the 500mm I had to crop in a lot to get the shot I was looking for. I have a lot to learn about using this set up. I filled up an 8GB card and only ended up with a handful of images I liked.
