This is truly an awesome 2 shot action series of this double-crested cormorant catching a fishy meal, Paul. I've always noticed that you shoot with a Canon 7D. I used one for many years before going to a 7DII. I'll say one thing; You surely get marvelous images with that older camera. They are very impressive. But I also know...it's the photographer, and not the camera, that captures great images:!:

Many,many thanks Mike.
I also have the awesome 7Dmkii.
Sadly its auto focusing system is not functioning properly. Its sitting on the shelf catching dust.:-(

Lately I've been shooting with the amazing Fujifilm X-T3.
Quite a pleasing experience.
Happy trails.

Beautifully captured shot, Robert. I love the bird's pose with the outstretched wings going forward to reveal the sharply defined flight feathers.

That's some incredible new technology Sha.
Combined with your amazing talent produces fantastic results.
Happy trails.

Thank you very much for the kind words, Paul!

Very nice, Shalu. I hate to tell you this, but I'm pretty certain this one is an immature drake mallard. All young mallards have the same coloration (look like females) and their normal drake coloration will fill by late fall or early winter. If you look at the bills, you can tell the males from the females at an early age. This bird has the bill color of a drake and is barely beginning to show just a slight hint of green on the face and head.

Check out this shot of a mother mallard (front right bird) and her 8 Young'uns. If you look at the bills there are 5 drakes, and 3 hens (I'm pretty sure).

Thank you very much, Mike! And thanks for the info. I didn't say it was male or female because I didn't know  :p Nice photo of the big family.

Happy trails.

Great cormorant action shots, Paul. I am looking forward to my own cormorant shooting season in couple of months.

Wow...my blunder on that, Shalu. I truly apologize. I definitely need to slow down and read more carefully what people say.

Thank you for the nice comment on the mallard family shot.

This shot of the Red-necked Phalarope getting airborne is and excellent image. I like the water droplets flying off, the green plant stuff on it's feet, and also the wing blurr, which really creates a nice sensation of motion.

These were all taken with a 32 year old Canon FD 500 on a Sony NEX-6.

So... Not only are you a bird whisperer, you're also a duck herder? :)

Very nice capture, Mike.

Very nice, Paul. You've posted several wonderful "fishing & eating" shots recently. You should share these in the "hunting, stalking & eating" thread as well.

Brilliant work. :)

Very cool looking shot, Sibil! This unique pose shows off the scrub jay's beautiful blue feathers. Excellent work here.
