A standard 55-250mm zoom. Really wanting the 100-400mm zoom L series!

Karen,

Those are some terrific photos of shore birds. Here are some I took in North Carolina this past autumn.

I'd laugh too if I could soar over the ocean like a kite all day!

These little sanderlings' legs can move so fast when they're running in and out of the waves looking for morsels to eat.

The crushed shells nearly match the coloration and pattern of their wing feathers.

I love watching formations of brown pelicans. They look like B-52's.
