Tanauan Tent City Babes by alabang, on Flickr

This baby is one of the many many children living in the Tanauan Tent City 7 months after Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines.

Beautiful and important picture

Whilst I was having lunch during a shoot, this little fella comes and sits a few metres away. I quickly put my sandwich down and grab a quick shot.

400mm, 1/1000, ISO 400, f2.8

Very nice

Here is to hoping it is paired with a new 100-400

Took one of my boys yesterday, 1Dx and the 200/2L

1Dx + 200/2 = What a dream combo :)

Yes I agree :) apart from the weight..

Lighting / Re: Have you used Honl gold/silver reflector/snoot?

Dear Perio.
I use Hon, both for Snoot and Up light reflector , Very easy to bring them in the long trip.
I love them special for Macro Photography, to control the light on the subject, and let the back ground dark with high shutter speed.

Beautiful pictures of the rose Surapon. I don´t think they sell Honl in Norway, but they sell the Rogue ones, are there any differences?

My first was the 24-105 as a kit for the 5D II, then got a bunch, but recently find myself using it more and more.

Fantastic shot, and I love the colors.

Very cool, and I have to try this technique out :)

EOS Bodies / Re: Debating on selling my 5D II and 35L/135L for a...

I have to say that I am impressed with your combo. You mention only the 5D II and the 35L and 135L, and none of these are kit lenses for that camera. That tells me that you either bought the house separately, and/or that you got rid of your 24-105 (or 24-70L), from which I deduce that you have no compromises for quality. I think you will find that the 5DII and 135L combo will be hard to beat from a IQ perspective.

I agree with some of the posters here talking about fatigue/being uninspired right now. The 5DII resale price is very low now, so you are not in a hurry to get rid of it. I would wait and see if inspiration comes back. And of course get rid of the grip if it bothers you.

Big kitty
400mm, f2.8,  ISO 200,  1/1000

This is another great shot for my iPad home screen menace! 

Lots of great shots lately everyone!  Eml,Quas, Eldar, Mack to name a few!

Thanks Northstar :) I could have killed myself for not bringing my 2xIII that day... I sooooo wanted to be able to fill the frame with the eyes.

Here is one of mine shot with a (then) borrowed 1Dx and a 70-200II, in the Ree Zoo, in Denmark.

Great alligator shots Macguyver! I would have made sure I knew where the mother was also  :P

This is the kitten of a rare small cat called Pallas's cat, also called the manul, a small wild cat having a broad but patchy distribution in the grasslands and montane steppe of Central Asia.

200-400 f4L IS 1.4x @560mm, 1/250s, f6.3, ISO2000

Fantastic shot!

To be able to sit less than one meter from this magnificent animal, with only a netted fens between us, look him in the eye, hear his deep bass roll and smell him, was just fantastic.

70-200 f2.8L IS II @125mm, 1/125s, f2.8, ISO800

Another reason to do the Norway trip, I think a month in the area would work well now I can see a use for the 200-400 & Subjects with Teeth & Attitude, although I'm sure the local Tribes have plenty of both considering they are descendants of the Norsemen.

Lovely set of Images Eldar, must be a Magical Experience (to quote Steve Jobs), to Photograph these animals in the wild though, and as good as these Images are, and they are good, I still feel your earlier Lynx Images are always going to be hard to beat.

Nice to see that 200-400 getting some use though, never would have considered it would be a Scandinavian Landscape type Lens, seems it can be.
Edward, considering where you´ve been and the images you have shot, it would be a bit difficult to recommend this to you. With your experience, skills, funds and available time, there are many things that would fill my stack I believe.

But on the other hand, if it is to watch and photograph these very rare cats, which it is very unlikely any of us will see in the wild, it is quite good. The Amur leopard must be shot through a netted fens. That is no problem though, unless the light shines on the fens. Same with the lynx. But with the Amur tigers, snow leopards, pallas cat (I believe that is the English name for it also) and the Persian leopard that comes in June can be shot from a bridge or platform.

Here´s an Amur tiger coming out from the woods
1DX, 200-400 f4L IS 1.4x, 1/200s, f5.0, ISO2500

Very nice pictures Eldar and Eml.

I have taken the trip to the bear park in Flaa twice trying to get a shot of the lynx, but it is very shy, so I have not succeded... The bears, wolves, and foxes on the other hand, are readily available to shoot (without the net, but from a high viewpoint). Speaking about shooting in Zoo's, the most impressive I have ever been to by far, is the one in Re, in Denmark. I'll see if I can dig up the pictures I shot there with my then borrowed 1Dx.
