    6 is definitely cool too, the water flying off the fish is excellent! I don't mind 4, except that the focus is on his back instead of his face.

    Yes I agree with you on #4, it upsets me a little but not much I can do. I think the D90 doesn't focus on a small enough area and I didn't have a tripod. I'll bet a tripod would help quite a bit.

    naw, its just a simple mis-focus...we all get 'em...I don't think a tripod would have helped that shot because the out of focus isn't due to movement...I've found for wildlife, especially birds, a tripod seems to get in the way more than anything else...though a good tripod is still an essential piece of equipment for most other shooting, tracking birds in flight, and having free range of movement is important so I prefer to just shoot hand held for those things.

    I'd say if your shooting skittish birds from a blind, tripod is great to have but of you filming something fast (warblers, falcons), ya tripod is more of a hindrance than a help. It really depends in what your subject is I think.

    +1 on this totally. I find myself shooting from the car as a blind more often than not so a tripod isn't much of an option there.
