Glad to have ya back. I know you're going to really like the 80D; I surely do enjoy mine. The images it produces are so nice. Look forward to seeing your posts, and hearing your thoughts on the new camera.

Quite impressive when you consider the focal length being shot on a crop body, which means you’re ‘supposed’ to add another x1.6 to the usual 1/focal length rule of thumb. In the last shot, you can even see movement in the branches from the breeze. Hats off to Chris!

Venturing into macroland here with the first one. Don't know what it is, but it was among the dragonflies. Can you ID it, Michael456?

Unfortunately, I was on the shadow side of the grebe who's been fishing. Fairly happy with it, though.

Thank you! What helps: Remaining calm in the moment, get your elbow in, and support the lens more ontop of your fingers around the tripod mount area, this way you can keep your arm more parallel to the ground, which then helps overall in extending the time period you can have the lens pointed up at your subject. So for example, pointing out at 90deg angle is easiest if the bird is say 10' up in a tree, but most owls are going to be higher, so supporting the lens on your fingers helps to increase the angle to maybe 110-120deg while still keeping your arm parallel.

The other part is -1/3rd or -2/3rds and push processing can buy some shutter speed and/or allow for a lower ISO than typically chosen. One other strange thing I've noticed, is that the IS sometimes is not at it's best in the first few seconds until you really calm and steady yourself, so I take a moment to do that and do a few half button presses to make sure I REALLY am focused on the Owl and not some random branch that's not even near the center point that Canon has decided is the next best option...

What NOT to do: Just walk up, OMG! OWL!!! Then just start firing away like an 80's Rambo movie! Those shots for me atleast never work out in poor lighting conditions.

The other part is getting your shoulders squared up and comfortable foot position, as those also contribute to camera shake. If you played basketball then all this makes sense!
