Oh this is beautiful Roy, just beautiful! They are so darn fast. Well done spotting him and getting this photo before it took flight. The clarity is awesome.

I just found a near mint condition AF-S 300mm f4 this morning and bought it. I've only taken a few test shots, but the AF seems spot on. I just have to get used to it. I have a week to test it and see if it's a keeper. I hope to add the 14e ii TC too. I am looking for a new one now. This is the kind of detail and creamy backgrounds I'm hoping to get.
