The battery grip also works with the 70D according to the canon site. Nice deal.

Is this right? Seems unlikely to me - the 70D has its own dedicated battery grip, and the 70D is about 1cm narrower than a 7D. Please could you provide a link to the Canon site you mention - thanks.

Definitely a good deal, though, even if just for 7D users.

A heavily cropped picture of an egret... They are very shy and one has to stay hidden and still for a long time for them to wander even this close.... Shot with a 60D and Tamron 150-600 at 600mm and F9.0.

The neck is very snake-like when they are walking towards you...
I feel your pain - stalking these birds is a pain. Very shy and they see you coming a LONG way off. The trick is to live in or visit areas where they are common, then you just run into them on occasion. I got some of my best shots pulled off the the road near a marsh.

Great Shot, wish they would come south.

Just returned from the worst boat trip ever to see puffins from Peggy's Cove.

My stomach feels queasy just hearing about it. Nice shots though. Once in a while you get some " miracle " shots that make your day.
