This is the Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Super Telephoto lens:
The Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM is one of the favorites among sports, bird and wildlife photographers, and is an extremely sharp lens even at f/5.6 wide open – that is, you don’t need to stop it down just to get sharp pictures of very high image quality.

AbBy’s Amazing Birds – Species and location: San Francisco Bay Area; Black-necked Stilt Fledgling at Radio Road, Redwood City, Fledgling Avocet, Dowitcher, Sparrow, Mallard Ducklings, Yellow Legs at Shoreline Lake, Mountainview, and a boring Willet (sic).
The photographer shot these with the 400mm f/5.6L mounted on a Canon 30D. This set is truly one of the best photos I’ve seen shot with this combination, and AbBy has more tips on approaching the juvenile birds.
