Lovely Albert and congratulations to you both, my better half and I are approaching 42 years so we have a way to go yet!  With that in mind as I was looking at your photo and reading your words these two loved up doves caught my eye through the window, seemed I had to take a photo.

 

 

You asked earlier for telephoto suggestions Albert.  Like others, I agree the 55-135 TL is the obvious easy choice.   I would be interested to see some examples of the Panasonic 70-200 F/4 if anyone has one and is using it with the CL.  I have a feeling that like the amazing 90-280 it's probably going to feel a little large.  

These two here are taken with the 180R 2.8 and the APO extender again.  Quite a few options if you want to look at adapted lenses, but it all adds weight.

 

The 90-280 IS a monster on the CL but it works extremely well.  A Tripod is almost essential.

The Swan and wading bird just round off a cracking good photo. Thanks for sharing it.

Thank you it was a bit of luck as I didn't even notice the swan till I looked on the computer; I was focussed on not chopping off the top of the mast! The second shot I took a second or two later has the swan's posterior sticking up in the air as he looks for something to eat with his head under the water.

Dave, I'm impressed with the sharpness of these pictures. Could you tell me what lens you used, I can't quite make it out in the reflection in the bird's eye. :)

Thank you. The lens is a TL 55-135mm at 135mm

Have you seen this...it's the same lens.

That's an amazingly sharp shot - must look at that topic thread more carefully!
