Oh, I've already forgiven him even though he didn't say he was sorry!  In fact he was quite impudent.
Thanks rpt.

:)

May be next time shoot him at f7.1 or f8. As he is not flying, you can drop the speed to 1/500 and with your 6D, kick up ISO to 3200...

     Any tips for a new wildlife photographer about to hit his first big excursion?  Do you use Spot and Partial Metering often as well as Center-Point Focus?  Av or Tv; generally?  AI Servo usually?
     Thanks for any guidance although I'm sure I'll have to learn a lot just by doing.
What kind of wild life?

Eastern Spine Bill feeding in the correas. I spied him this morning, making his way through the correa bush in my back garden. So, with 15min to spare, I waited for a repeat performance. Sure enough, he popped back :)

A fast little mover (think humming bird), so from 4m away, I just held the button down until the memory buffer filled :)

5D3 with 300mm f4 + 1.4x TC.


Lovely shots!
Thanks rpt. I nearly didn't go out and take them, thinking, "....there's time later in the day....". But I'm glad I did :)
Well, you obviously did not take Ellen Degeneres' advise - she says "procrastinate now!"  ;D

Sunset at Newport Coast. Shot with the 24-105L. Bear with me - I just learned the art of split toning :)
Please critique.


RPT, #1 is superb!  Very, very nice!  8)
Thanks. Like someone said on another thread, lovely skies here in the LA area - but then again it is sunny CA...

Nice Captures Serendipidy, The Eye on this Bird is just Tack Sharp, as well as a little scary, well done.
"Scary"?    Downright spooky if you ask me.
If he does leave you sometime, do you think his parting words will be

" so long, and thanks for all the fish!"  8)

Cheers Brian

Hi Brian,
LOL...he will be hitchhiking his way across the galaxy ;D
I suspect he will also say "I'll be back!"

This Guy was a Laugh, Pretty well thought nothing could see him in the Tall Grass, even though He/She was a Baby, that's a Baby Rhino, still hard to hide one behind some tall Grass. Shot this with the 400, no crop, gives some idea how close.

1Dx 400f/2.8 V2, Shot @ f/6.3 & 1/320th ISO800
Man! you are brave! Where was Mama?
