IslanderMV, interesting (and great shots).  I still haven't gotten around to getting a Kayak and always have visons of drowned camera gear.  Do you?

Thanks Click.  Can't you just picture those baby birds getting "fresh bug with syrup on top".

Thanks guys, I'm all ears.  I would love to learn how to do better - quite different than catching posing birds! ;)

Ha Ha, I do want a 1DX.  I can't fathom the higher numbers though!

I've posted a few shots a ways back.  They sure don't compare.  Anyone willing to share some of the secrets of these great shots?  What's required, other than decent equipment, which is not my problem although I'm not saying mine's the best.  Obviously the lighting associated with the time of day is one factor and for mountains I see lots of haze.  Would a polarizer help solve that or do you just need all the right environmental pieces in place?

Oh Oh, my mistake - didn't realize that the number changes for past posts at the same time! :-[

Hey someone's out to get me!  Seems I've been stuck at 819 posts for a long time - is there no hope of getting beyond a 1DMark 4 >:( :(  ;)  What gives?

Thanks candyman, I seem to have more than my share of luck catching such things.  It really makes me chuckle cause I'm a pretty poor photographer just firing away! ;D  It's all about fun and I'm having fun.

Really good lesson here for all - keep your mouth shut if you don't know what you're talking about.  None of us is immune to jumping to conclusions - I try regularly to remind myself that pulling someone down doesn't elevate me. :(

Thanks for that and it is indeed a lovely shot regardless of exhaustion!
Norway appears to have a lot to offer scenic and wildlife photographers! :)

KerryB, it would have heard my heart beating from under the canvas and flown away! ;)  One of those moments that I typically blow.

"but brought way to little water" - more fun to carry lenses until it's time to drink! ;)

So, where is this "place" and what are you shooting with etc.
