Never had wild wood ducks come so close and not spot me. They hopped up on a log about 10 meters in front of me. Glad I stretched this morning; I had to freeze in uncomfortable positions for several minutes multiple times.

This combo (7D MkII and this lens) just keeps amazing me with the images that I can get. I saw this American Kestrel leave it's perch a couple hundred yards away and I had my dial set to Custom 3 (BIF) in anticipation. Using the BBF it locked on and as I followed it getting closer the auto focus fine tuned. These are by no means great but I used to be lucky to get the whole BIF framed. These little falcons are small, fast, and camera shy.

Did you ever see that cat twice? It takes me days to get as many images as you do in 12 minutes. You need a caddie to carry your camera? If it's still out of commission then we can take mine.

I know.. I'm like the fastest draw in the west. I only got 682 in that 12 minutes. You've only seen a small few.. They all have a Lynx in them lol

Some how a long time ago I learned to capitalize.. get into position and get some good images. I really only look through the viewfinder as its all happening so I'm there when the shot happens. I have to remind myself to look around because I've had people sneak up on me without me knowing.

And no.. Only the one time. I wish for more!! If you'll give me 12 mins with your 7DII then your in lol .. I'm running mine all gammy handed it feels like. using the back wheel to adjust is like all wrong. not an easy task. I had to set the zoom button to zoom in for me to check the shot because the front wheel won't work anymore.

I'm going to do a workshop on how to use up your camera doing wildlife to post on POTN..

What do you do when a large cat walks up close to you and your crouched down so as you look as small as can be.. ??
