Marsh Harriers on the patch

in the cracking light I hoped to get some shots of the local Marsh Harriers but after nearly 2 hours with no birds it looked like a lost cause; then the male passed by and the female started hunting -- not a bad result -- I have taken to using the 500 f4 without the converter of late and I think it certainly shows in flight photography not only in AF operation but in image quality; it is easy to fall into just leaving the 1.4 on all the time but there is a downside to it
