No excuses necessary for that shot, Matt. It's a real beauty, and you composed it so nicely.

Harry, I got mine yesterday, and played around with it a good part of the day. From what I can tell, it's a step up from anything I've ever shot with. My 7DII is a close second and will not be put on the back burner. If you are thinking about getting a 1DXII, I'd go for it.

Oh wow congratulations Mike!! I bet you're going to love it.

Harry

Been wanting a Canon 100-400 for quite a while. It arrived yesterday, and as the FedX truck pulled out of the driveway the dark clouds and drizzle rolled in. vmadvmad Finally, after about four hours the rain stopped and the sky lightened up just enough to grab a few shots of a hummingbird we have coming to our feeders. When he gets his fill of nectar he'll sit on the shepherd's and chase the other ones away. To top it off it's been raining all day today and a cloudy rainy forecast for the next two days. vmadvmad

That is a cracking combo you have - both body and lens just work together.

Finally got it right I think - Nikon D500, Nikon 300 F4 PF, Nikon 1.4 X mk3 TC

Wow, that's quite an amazing shot, Shalu. The crows seem fearless of the raptors during the daylight hours. But after sunset, the owls get even.

Thank you very much, Mike!

Wow, this thread has really taken off since I last posted. It's hard to keep up. Great images in here to be seen.

Here is a portrait shot of a Red-shouldered Hawk.

Your three photos show the range of pure beauty to extreme ugliness that we see in the egret/heron community. :lol: These are great shots,
