As I continue to experiment with bird photos in my backyard, I am learning 
that the shoulder stock and other conveniences used by Doug Herr and others 
are necessities if one is to get sharp images. This shot, using a 200mm plus 
2X TC was made with more "reach" but, on an overcast day, the shutter speed 
is too slow for a sharp handheld exposure.
