Seeing I post here the most I hope this is okay to post here. I thought some of you may like this. Here is a video of a small clip of this Red-bellied Woodpecker eating some suet during some light rain @ 120 fps. I used the 1dx mark II and the 800mm.

Cormorant : It eventually managed to subdue the eel, swallowed it and then swam slowly away, too loaded down to fly, I guess.

Taken years ago with a 50D and the old 100-400. If I'd had the gear I have now I could have got the shutter speed up a lot more and got more fps too. Oh well...

Thanks, Pag, I never looked at it like it was movement, but I see what you mean now.
