So many great shots on this page 55 ..don't know where to start..Steven, Anand - those owl photos are truly incredible..keep 'em coming!

Got up close 'n personal yesterday with this American Kestrel.  Upon existing the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary in Irvine, this usually skittish bird allowed me a few quick shots before taking off.  Though all were quite nice, this one is perhaps the best

I was thrilled to be able to capture this shot..a White-tailed Kite.  Not a common bird to start with and his haunting eyes against the white feathers make this raptor somewhat eerie.

I ran my Bird App and pulled up the Acorn Woodpecker.  I placed a few calls and about 5 entered the scene.  However, this is a very strange shot as this thin branch won't leave much room for a hole to plant his food.  He was either elated with the calls or wanted to leave room at the previous branch as a "gentleman like" courtesy.

A Male Red-winged Blackbird perched in a barren tree adjacent to a wildlife pond.  They have the most incredible bird calls.  Noisy at times, but most diverse especially when in a cluster.

Here's a Say's Phoebe in Flight.  They have such a unique flight pattern:   Buoyant fluttering flight with shallow wing beats., Hovers, dips for prey.  I witnessed them land on a branch.  They wait a minute, fly very close to the tree over an open area then flutter and hover for about 20 seconds then fly back.  Its a repeated process and intriguing to watch.

Mailman - truly a brilliant photo..excellent work on that eagle shot..I should look at the EXIF info or if you care to share..

Intriguing ... the LR shot has noise while the DPP does not
- Indeed I noticed this too.  it looks like you may have some NR on in DPP.  check your tabs 3rd and 4th to be certain.

I agree, Lightroom appears to be more noisy at first but once you work the sliders with luminance / chrominance and masking it helps quite a bit.

rj79in - that looks like the "butcher bird"..aka Logger Shrike..due to their small talons they have no choice but to impale their prey on thorns, barb wires..anything prickly to assist with their kill

Here's two more masked bandits captured on 1-13-12:

Hi Christian..
If the Q menu is activated, nothing happens when the DOF button is pressed as expected.
true however if you note the top of the camera it does change.  I rarely if ever use the top of the camera for navigation / changes..more reliant on the larger 3" screen with the Q button.  I thought it made no sense that the change occurs on top or if you press Info 3x but not on the Q menu.  it should be all succinct on "any menu" point being.

Hi Neuro..
Good catch on the focus mode toggle display - I'll have to check that on my 1D X (when toggling, I'm always looking through the VF, so I've not checked either LCD).

I'm not sure the daylight savings issue is a bug.  Wrong behavior, yes, but not an error in programming. When you state that you, "...opted to go into the GPS settings and turn off Daylight Savings time," that doesn't look like it's possible.  ..........
Try leaving the daylight savings camera time setting off, and see what happens when DST starts in two months.

There is a setting for this (don't have it connected now but as I recall it has a sun icon).  you can toggle this on and off - it's within the city it says Los Angeles.  I have not had an issue since I've toggled this off.  The time stamps are all correct now so I'm fairly confident that was the issue.  You raise an interesting point and that is to turn off DLS on the camera.  That certainly is another work around though since I rely on the camera time more than the GPS (not always connected) I may stay put and wait to hear back on what canon has to say.  PS did you get the latest version of the 600mm @ F/4 ?

I guess that's a new one on me..better beamer..I'm intrigued..which ones are you using ?
