Ouch! But very nice
Lovely! How did you shoot this? And this is play. Notice the claws are out but the pressure is only to hold. Not break skin. And they can do that in a microsecond! Notice the skin depression on the middle finger. It is play.

Well, my first cat Bambi did that to me once - held my finger in her mouth with sufficient pressure to hold and refused to let go so I went in with my mouth and held her paw with my teeth! She had this shocked look. Total disbelief. She let go of my finger. The look said "What! You did that to me? You are my dad - you cant do that!". That look was priceless. If only they could talk.

She has been gone a long time. This incident was probably 21 years back. She was my first cat. She taught me Cat. Before that I thought that I was a Dog person and so I needed to hate cats! Surprise - surprise! Things your "other" family members teach you...

I did a Google search and got this link.

I am sure you can find more if you google.

A lens for birding that is better than the 100-400L and the 1.4x II. So the 200-400L but the cost is too much for me at the moment.

most of us have been somewhat disappointed that our beloved brand Canon didn't introduce a higher megapixel sensor to rival that of the competition...

"Most" of us?

What do you base that speculation on?

Thought I was going to catch this Western Bluebird in flight but this was just one of the false starts.

Wow! That is sharp! What did you shoot it with?

Thanks rpt!  This was the 1DX, a 600 II and a 1.4X III.  1/2500 : f/9 : ISO 800
Wow! 600 II! So many of you have that. May be I should get it. The only problem is the trailing 3 zeros! Well, may be when I hit the jackpot. Or rob a bank (may be I should not have said that on the internet)... So scratch that. Plan B. And I am not saying what that is ;)
Come on now....tell us  ::)
OK. you convinced me. Since we are on an open searchable forum, I need to encode it. So here goes. The answer is:
