If I was the Grey I'd consider them no more than shackles.

Yes the bands, an ongoing study done by the the last chief Naturalist of Algonquin Park. Honestly I think the MRN have done enough damage to the Gray Jay and should stop with all there molesting of every critter

Great image - and I so agree with you re the banding. I think it's obscene the way they catch and then 'band' the birds. A few years ago some ospreys were fitted with GPS units which, it was claimed, would not affect them but I believe they all were found dead or got lost. I always believed the extra weight and electronics they were carrying on their huge migration had something to do with it. Anyone from the UK may remember Logie the osprey who is, sadly, no longer with us.

You ever think to youself that maybe we don't have to study everything, dont have to know everything...maybe just let some nature be a mystery. Plus I don't like shackles in my pics=selfish me ;)

My answer to that that question is ..Yes..after studying a colony of birds say 60 or 70 individual's since the Apollo 7 space days you would think enough money and time has been spent. Every bird is still handled, every new chick is handled in the nest. I don't believe its about the birds any longer.

One with shackles removed if only in Lightroom

As a small tribute to Jeff's wonderful fox shots here is a young fox snoozing in the early morning sun on the neighbours grass cutting pile.

The shutter was enough to wake him but he did go back to sleep.

Lester, that's a fantastic tribute to Pondrader and his foxes!
I wish I could be so lucky....I don't think Jeff would be so honored with a bug pic! HA!
But my heart would be in the right place.

OK all of you 7D mark ll experts, I am officially in a quandary. I have a 7D and a have acquired a number of lens over the past couple of years, as you can see in my signature. They are all EF and L lens that will lend themselves well to a FF camera.
My problem is, I like to shoot wildlife, BIF, and most recently motors ports. The 7D has performed very well most of the time and with the introduction of the newest 7D, I thought that I would just upgrade and all would be well. But as fate would have it, I rented a 6D and fell in love with the high ISO and low light capabilities of this great camera. The down side is, boy I sure miss the frame per second and found that the focusing system really isn't up to par with the old 7D with fast action.:-(
I have recently become more interested in portrait and landscape photography, so the question is: Can the 7D mark ll satisfy my needs or should I wait and save for a 5D lll? It will take awhile.
I only have the option of purchasing one camera, being retired, and wanted ANY input and pictures that anyone can give me concerning the low light, indoor and landscape shooting capabilities of the 7D ll. For the most part all I have seen are great action and good light shoots.
PS. The 1.4 extender would be a nice bonus to use with the 100-400

You can find a 5D3 used very close to the price of a new 7D2.

There is about 2/3rd of a stop between the 5D3 and the 7D2 but the 7D2 cleans up very very well with NR almost closing the gap - almost. So if a 7D2 is in your budget and high shutter speed is important I would highly recommend the 7D2.

I have both + a 5dsr and have taken one of my 5d3s out of my 3 camera wedding setup and replaced it with the 7D2 for those rapid fire bursts.


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

This may I have both the 7D2 and 5D3. I like having both. I owned the 7D since the month it was released. The 7D2 is great camera but beside greatly improved zone capabilities, about ⅔ stop low light improvement, quicker AF acquisition there is nothing my 7D could not do that my 7D2 does. I can post hundreds of BIF, Macros, high ISO, etc shots. It had excellent crop-ability. If I had no choice I would have no problems going back to my 7D. There was a period of time I wish I had not sold it.

The few things I appreciate most about my 7D2 is zone AF, AF selection lever and case numbers.

A few from the 7D.
