Super sharp picture Alan. Was that with a Sony?  ;)

It was so close that the 100-400mm II was at 182mm. The 5DSR beats any Sony.

Albatross - Kaikoura, NZ.

The sea was much rougher than it looks here, but managed to get one skimming the waves.

You guys traveling the world ... and here me sits in the snow in April.  Not my idea of global warming but maybe impending doom. ;)  Nice shot Mike.

LOL Jack. 

From the estuary on the San Diego River, the terns are back for another fish catching season.  Here's a Forster's Tern showing off one of the morning's catches.

ERHP, nice low angle, lovely.  I did have a first on Friday but no capture - A Bald eagle flew over my house briefly.  I know a few hang around the general area but never had a fly over so that was very special.  Their numbers obviously are growing but I have no idea what they'd find to eat here.

Way from it, unfortunately with about 20km of intermittent roadworks north and south.

Nice shot, Mikehit - you can see the sea must be quite rough; the right wing (tip) is hidden behind the crest of a wave (which by itself is hardly noticeable in the image...) so these waves must be higher than it appears!

Great action shot Ed! With nice reflection - was the water so smooth, or just that patch?

That's quite a shot - those critters are quick.
