Image was taken after a pair of eagles tried to swipe this guy’s dinner. He took off with his doggie bag and went deep into the trees.

7D2 with 100-400 II


That's a bloody great shot. Well done!

I have both. If you are not into sports, get the 5D3. I got that camera 3 years back and I swear by it. The reasons I got the 7D2 were:
  • 10 fps
  • AF during video
  • higher pixel density
However, 5D3 is my general go to camera.

A beautiful moth with large antennae, shot from a low angle to mimic the look of a samurai warrior's helmet.

Wonderful photo!

HI guys!

From today's outing, loving the weather now! One Godox 360 in a ProFoto Octa 3', sun as edge. I was thinking about using a CTO gel to warn the flash to match the ambient, but I find the cooler light from the octa to look cool with the warmer sun, when used as edge.

24-70 II @ 2.8 1/2000s iso 100
The second picture is excellent!

Thank You Gentlemen, this particular Male was entrancing, the eyes I have never seen this bright before on any Lion, and I've Photographed a few, he is the Alpha Male of a coalition of 3 Brothers in the Mashatu Plains area, on this particular morning he was on his own & was following vultures in the sky hoping they would lead him to a fresh kill, so he was constantly looking upward and the light was just about perfect.

Another day in Paradise.
I would not want to be up there being stared at! Excellent pic as usual Edward!

Don't think my "landing" shots really cut it for BIF, so am posting it here.  This is for those who can appreciate "patience".  ;)

I don't think my 6D 1/4000 is quite enough.

Jack, lovely picture! I think it does qualify for the BIF category.

I want 22/24 and 50. I voted 50 as there was no chance of a multiple choice. I am very happy with my 5D3 and just got a 7D2 (which is 51.2/(1.6*1.6))

I will not be buying another camera for a loooong time...

I am staying on 1.2.3
Yup! Same here. I have ML installed and I am not about to give it up!
Well, looks like we may have a ML port for 1.3.3 after all! Take a look at http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=11017.msg138967#msg138967

Every year we have these wintering visitors hang out in the same spot, in the fields to the southwest of Ramona, CA.  These Mountain Bluebirds rarely seem to interact with the resident Western Bluebirds, even though you can find them on opposite sides of the same hill.

Ooooo! Nice!

Really happy with how this turned out.  Five shot panorama with Canon 5D MKii and Sigma 105mm F/2.8 EX DG Macro at F/13 iso 100.


Very nice. Lovely sky. Well done Andy.
