7kgs? What tube you've used? :) My EOS 7D seldom exceeds 4kgs... (And show me anybody who states that photography is not a sport... :D :D :D)

It was with the 400 2.8 IS in it :) Old version, 6Kgs with the hood lens only :D

And yes, I agree with this : a real sport but only for the left harm :D

Thanks for your comment

That's cute little pretty :D Well, I usually take into account that you have to carry the gear which is usually more than one lens (my usual backpack runs over 10kg) and take it impossible locations, and for wildlife photography, quietly. Having little walks of several miles / kilometres with alarmed senses is a pure adrenaline rush, depending on the target you want... It is like hunting, but we have to get a good way closer than with a riffle. Left arm is the most exercised, sure—as the right arm and tight for a bowling player... 
And even object photography (I do jewellery a lot) is a sport, I usually jumping up and down and around to set the lights, setup the "models", check the camera, etc... :D

So I would modify your statement: a real sport especially for the left arm ;)

How can that poor thing still breathe with 20 fish stuck in its mouth? I don't see any nostrils on his beak either :wow: Anywho, lovely shot, Puffins are adorable! Though I would have never thought they were that small...
