Not quite as sharp as I’d like but really pleased to have caught it with its prey!

Looks like this bird might well have given you hair cut Mike!

Love the front on pose, nice focus too.:-)

Cheers

Dennis

Thank you muchly, Dennis! I had 560mm of horsepower to bring him in close. No worries about the haircut, but an exploding on impact spatter bomb is always a concern with those big boys.:lol:

Thank you very much, fotoi. I'll tell my wife what you said about the camera 'singing to me." Maybe that will help justify all the $$$ I've spent on this mirrorless stuff.  :p I do have to admit; this R5 and the Canon M6II sure seem to like me.

Well focused BIF shot, including the water drops....

Thank you very much, SYS. I'm getting a higher percentage of flight shot keepers, with the R5 due to it's ability to eye focus on birds and animals. Since I know that you're thinking about going with the R5,I just wanted to let you know what my thoughts are, concerning this camera. As I become more proficient with it, I'm also liking it more each time I go out and shoot with it. The more I shoot with it, the faster I get at changing settings, plus I'm settling in on what dial and button functions to change for my personal tastes. The choices are almost endless.

Another thing I should mention is; I've had the opportunity to also shoot with the R6, and truthfully I don't really see a difference (other than one or two minor button/dial differences) between the R5 and the R6. As time goes on, I'll prolly see the ability to get larger crops with the R5, but I really haven't noticed that yet. I do believe that I'm seeing a bit less noise with the R6 over the R5. But again, I want more time with both cameras to make that determination.

Thank you for your take on both R5 and R6. When I upgraded from 5D III to 5D IV, it was primarily for crop-ability. It made a significant difference for my bird photography, and I believe it'd make even a bigger difference when I go with R5 not just for crop-ability but because of its superior AF and tracking performances.

It just doesn't get more alive looking than this shot, Shalu!! I actually tried to grab the fish from his mouth. :p Outstanding photography!!

Thank you very much, Mike! :-P

Archibald wrote in post #19132059 (external link)
Another great shot.

I hope that isn't fishing line on the fish...

Thank you very much, Ed! No, it was just thread algae, which was abundant in that part of the lake.

I agree, I would definitely go for the R5, not the R6. R5 in crop mode is very close to 7DII in pixels (only about 12% less), I am surprised Mike did not notice that.
