Was beginning to wonder if we'd ever see Harry again! ;)  Lovely shots.

Jack

Thanks Jack. Harry, Jr was AWOL for 2 months and I thought maybe something had happened to him. He returned on Christmas day and, although his skills were rusty, we managed to catch some fish.
It looks like to me that you went AWOL with Harry! :P

One more from the 28th of December. 1/500, f/4, ISO 100, 7D2, 70-200 II + 1.4x @125mm

Beautiful photo rpt! Nicely composed.
Thanks! I have to admit that the composition was not so good. I cropped it to get the composition I should have got in the first place  :)

There was this Drongo on the same tree. He picked such a spot that I had to go around to get the branch (that you see to the left side) away from him. Unlike his mate, he was not skittish. He sat there in all his majesty and I was the one who blinked - well, departed. As I started the car I could see that he was still sitting there. 1/500, f/4, ISO 100, 7D2, 70-200 II + 1.4x @125mm.

7d Mk II
300mm f/2.8L II + 1.4x III extender
2x 600ex-rt flashes (you can see them both in the eyes)
1/200 @f/4.0, ISO 160

Are those snow flurries or rain drops?

Lovely pictures here!

I humbly add a Bee-eater taken on the 28th of December 2014. I love the picture. Credit goes to my shiny new 7D2, the sturdy old  100-400L and to the pretty Bee-eater. The settings were M; 1/1250, f/7.1, ISO 250 shot @400mm.

BTW, all the oof and blurry shots I get from the 7D2 are mostly user error (hand shake or shutter speed not high enough) or subject movement. Not the 7D2.

Nice work. I'm jealous of your new 7D2 ;D. Keep posting 8)
Thanks. It took a while to get used to there being so much more pixel density compared to the 5D3. For the first two weeks most pictures had blur. Motion blur. I really needed to kick up the shutter speed compared to the 5D3!

Readjusted a bit and reposted. I like the other one the way it is.
Yes, I like that image better too. The negative space and the contrast on that image does make it better. I thought you had cropped that image and so I thought that you could move the crop rectangle a bit.

I clicked here thinking this would be something WAY different.  WAY WAY different.   ;D

Nicely captured none-the-less.

I know. Disappointing huh.
I did not feel any disappointment - since I don't know French ;)

French is easy. On my travels, I've only needed three phrases:

je ne parle pas francais
parlez vous anglais
voulez vous coucher avec moi

Learn those and you're golden.
Looks like I am half way there! I know #2. I figured out #1. And don't laugh! I shall soon Google #3 and I will be golden!  :P

The softness is intentional. I like the dreamy effect.
I love it. May be move the flower a bit to the right...
