Wedding Photographer - ceremony was on the beach.

Regular beach-goers cheered when the couple took their vows. I was on the beach looking for birds, got this with a 100-400mm at 400mm ( I was interested in what gear she was using.)

Had some fun watching a juvenile Belted Kingfisher catch its fill yesterday.



Wonderful action shot ! Belted kingfishers are tough to capture on the wing. Great clarity, a super pict.

Great Blue Heron , face to face. Fun to see front markings in "3D".

 I have lots of GBH picts but never with this interesting plumage view. It is semi sharp when you look at it full screen. My 60D's modest tracking ability was lucky to get this shot. Hmm, time to put aside some cash for a 7D m2 !

You can actually photograph freedom!

Wonderful series, exotic birds, captured with great detail.
I would be interested in lens and camera, used.

Thanks

Reviews / Re: Hands on preview of Sigma 150-600S

In regard to weight, the 600mm Canon prime weighs in at a hefty 8.5 pounds, so 6.3 pounds for the Sigma does not seem all that bad.
( I am lifting a 15 pound barbell with my left hand as I type this )

Pied-billed Grebe, doing some fishing.

Very small, shy waterbird, I had to shoot through heavy brush at waters edge. Tough shot, some times you get lucky.

Street & City / Re: Famous icons in your city

Great Photos, I had fun tying to figure what city the pict was in if not labeled.

I am bummed I live in the sticks. No city-scapes and famous landmarks here .

Wait... wait - one of the first carousels in the USA is here and a church from the days of the whaling industry is still being used. I guess I will have to take some picts. I'll have to start a new forum - Semi-famous little town landmarks.
