A pair of Pied Billed Grebe came close by feeding this morning.

Woa!

Explains why I've never seen one in Oregon! Saw Calgary and had to do a double take!

So happy to get this. Extreme crop. Slightly out of focus (had to manually focus, camera was focusing on the branch in front of the bird)
BUT I GOT IT! Probably the same Peregrine falcon I have seen 4 times before over the past 4 years. Twice I did not have my camera, it was close by but the bird only stays briefly if I don't move, moving is out of the question. Once I had my camera but failed to get a photo in the 1 second or so I could have. Once I got a photo but it was about 400 metres away. This morning I heard lots of alarm calls and new there was a raptor about, then it landed in a tree close to me and I got several seconds of it checking me out before it left.

This is a Black Phoebe.

Not actually a very good pic of this bird, but I thought I'd post it for the interesting bokeh that it shows, produced by the 100-400mm II. The circles are tiny out of focus specular highlights. They are in the form of rings. The perimeters are brighter than the insides of the circles.

We have seen before that under certain conditions, out of focus linear objects display a kind of doubling, sometimes called "nervous bokeh". Those lines are just countless bright circles like these strung together. The 100-400mm II is not the only lens that exhibits this kind of bokeh - lots of lenses do this.

The out of focus circle at the top right is especially interesting. Note that it is composed of many concentric circles. That is called onion-ring bokeh. It is caused by microscopic manufacturing traces on the surface of one or more of the elements in the lens. Actually all the blurs have the same onion-ring pattern, but it is not discernible in most of them because most of the out of focus objects are too big and it smears the pattern.

The 100-400mm II is a great lens. These bokeh attributes are only seen under special conditions and don't take away significantly from the quality of the lens IMO.

Hey folks,

I'm going to take this lens and my 77D on vacation for the first time, and while I have a nice massive Lowepro backpack that holds all my equipment, I'd like to get something small (maybe a single-strap sling-style bag) that will just hold the camera, the 100-400mm II, my wide angle 10-18, and a few accessories/memory cards. Something smaller/lighter for when I'm walking around but don't need my entire photography kit.

Anything y'all like for carrying the 100-400 and a smaller lens?

Thanks!

I have a Think Tank Turnstyle 20 and just did a test fit with my 5D3 (with L Plate) + 100-400II mounted laying on its side and my 16-35 f/4 on its end. They just barely fit. You shouldn't have any trouble with the smaller body and wide angle lens. If you want a little more room, MindShift makes a similar bag that's a little bigger.

Thanks, Mike. I was looking at the Turnstyle 20 and the LowePro Passport III, so that's helpful to know the ThinkTank is likely to be about the size I'm looking for.
