Wonderful shots, Tim.
You've certainly got an eye for framing your pictures.

Even at 1/500 shutter speed, I still have to neck the exposure down a stop from what the on-board light meter says.

Thanks Tim. That's one nice setup you have there. We have been looking around for a really good camera and a used Canon 40D or a new 60D are two of the finalists. They both seem to be great camera for wildlife and sports photography from what I have read and the people we have spoken with. The Nikon D300 is also in the running. Choices, choices ...

I'd get a cheaper camera with good lenses any day of the week over a more expensive camera and cheaper glass.

Good reminder. Like most things, there's a bigger bang for the buck. I've heard that before about lenses over camera body.
