First, a crazy story. I got my 5D MK2 back from Canon yesterday and excitedly headed out into the woods. After taking about 25 pictures, I was hiking back out with the 5D in my chest holster. I heard a sound, started to look up, then heard a whack! An acorn had fallen from an oak and cracked my LCD screen on the back of the camera. How weird is that? I had it back for TWO HOURS before this happened! Life is sometimes very strange. Anyway, I took this shot this morning at dawn and quickly fell in love. My 5D is still functional (I did long exposure work with it this morning), but I had my telephoto on the crop body to get this shot.
