Egret having a feed of snake - Botswana
My! That's a big worm! ;)

Excellent timing. The whole thing must have happened in less than 30 seconds.

Ha! Ha! Ha!

That is what one does when there is nothing to shoot - or should I say so much to shoot.  :)

Hello CR!

First post, a shot I've been planning and waiting for! Hope you enjoy.

Canon 5D ii 20mm (17-40) 5 vertical stitched images ISO 160 F14
Welcome! Very nice picture. Where is this? Is that a lighthouse out in the sea?

A few more from the past several days. 5D3, 100-400L @400mm.

These two moorhens are a breeding pair and have a nest up the canal around the bend and out of sight. Whenever I start fishing with Harry the Heron, several minutes later, one of the moorhens comes swimming towards us as fast as his little legs can go. I don't know how they know I'm here. So I throw him a chunk of bread, and he runs along the bank (very funny gait ;D) towards the nest, and then, halfway there, he jumps in the water and literally runs on the water (flapping his wings to keep just his body in the air). After 5 minutes, he or both of them return for seconds and thirds in the same manner. It is late afternoon and the sun is low behind the mountains, so the light is not optimal, but I tried to capture this ritual.
Nice pictures! I can now see a whole new series starting up. Harry is going to be jealous!

This has been one of my favorite threads on this site, both as a contributor and a viewer! Great shots people, let's keep them coming!
For me this one and Anything shot with a 1DX are joint first :)

There are not enough Heron pictures on this forum, so here's my contribution....

Green Heron, shot with 60D and 70-200 at 200mm, ISO320, 1/800th at F8.0
Ha! Ha! Ha! Go Don go! Somebody has to give serendipity a run for his bread :)

Quick volleyball shot:

1/500s, f/2.8, ISO 1600 with the 70-200 f/2.8L II IS lens.

great shot...volleyball is tough with the net in the way and the tough shooting angles....good job.

I keep trying to catch the larger birds like the Jays & Acorn Woodpeckers on takeoff.  Much harder than waterfowl it seems.



Very nice shot ERHP. Well done.

Is this thread locked?

Been trying to post for several days --  no joy.
Well, you posted in it so I guess it is not locked :)

Dustin, I tried a shot similar to yours this past summer.  It does have the harsh lighting but it still works I think.
Are these redwoods? I like the star too. I have a question though: why did you not rotate it by 90 degrees?

Hi, here (after a long abstinence) a few "Watery Birds". Nothing special but I do like the Bokeh in the water.
I'm glad you've all being keeping standards up while I was busy <G>
Cheers Brian
I like the green in the water too! Lovely!

Thanks all. Have the shot that told me I should stop pestering the poor thing. (7D, ISO100, 1/1600s, F/5.6, 500mm)
As a bonus, here's a Sharp-shinned hawk. (7D, ISO100, 1/400s, F/7.1, 700mm)

Each afternoon, when I start helping Harry catch his fish dinner, these same two male Brazilian cardinals immediately show up out of nowhere for a bread handout. They will both approach quite closely if I don't give them a morsel right away. Yesterday, after they got their meal, they both took off and returned several minutes later with a dozen of their female friends who all wanted a bread handout, too. It was quite a ruckus for a few minutes, fighting over the bread crumbs I threw at my feet. ;D

Here's one...5D3, 100-400L
Wow! A congregation of cardinals! The bread must be good! ;)
Beautiful picture.
