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.

I think it would be fun to go on an owl chase with you...the concept seems like it would be more like an adventure...

I have only ever happened upon an owl once, in the Smokies, it was perched up in the trees in the shadows at the end of the day, and caused quite the Cades Cove traffic jamb.

the rain drips through the frame and the water beads on the bird are great little details to have here, really cool image.

I sit at my computer, and just stare at this image. It's soft colors, raindrops on the pipit, and in the beautiful background make this image very appealing.
