Nice shots!  How about some toads too?

The place where a shot these is a wooded area in Wisconsin that has a spring fed creek running through it.  As you go deeper in the woods, rock bluffs surround you on all three sides and there's a small waterfall where the trail ends.  It's awesome, there are frogs everywhere.

Wow, great photos.  I love the owls and the fox.

Hi.  I wanted to share some frog photos I took earlier this week.  I think the first one is my favorite.

Equipment:  Canon 7D + 70-200 f/4 L

That's a real cool shot neuroanatomist.  I need some experience with motion've inspired me.  ;)

I shot these photos this weekend.  If you look at the second photo you'll notice a fly in the damselfly's mouth.
Canon T2i + Tamron 90 mm.

The 7D was on sale at Adorama the end of April.  I also picked up the 24-105 f/4 L for $890.10.  I had been waiting for either to go on sale and both did on the same day.  Go figure.

Not sure what you mean by photobucket, I use it to post all my photos.

Great shots. I use the same camera + lens combo and love it too. Looks really quite sharp in the first photo, given that you shot wide open at full zoom. I typically do the same (1/200s @ 200mm i.e. keep the shutter at the reciprocal of the focal length), but I gotta ask did you shoot handheld or using a tripod? My guess is the latter.
Thanks.  Both photos were shot handheld a few minutes apart.  I don't have the steadiest hands at times, so the IS must be pretty effective.

7D = Awesome Camera
+1, I agree, I'm loving the upgrade

So what's wrong with the composition, apart from it being obviously not straight? (I spotted that one....).
And the bird could be brightened up a little maybe.
After all its not that you were a professional laying waiting for the shot. I'd like to hear what could be done
better here, in these circumstances.
Cheers Brian
Hi Brian, yeah I think you're probably right.  I just wish I could have gotten the shot without the siding as the background.  But what I did get is way better than nothing.  Thanks for your comments  :)

Please excuse the composition, but I didn't have a lot to work with.  I was heading out this morning and noticed this hawk perched on my neighbors bird bath.  Unfortunately it flew away when I tried getting closer.

Nice shot.  I wish I could get my pair to cooperate.  Maybe someone could photoshop these two together for me  ;)

Thank you!  Good point on the beetle photo.  I cropped it to get it to 10x8, perhaps I can do so in the other direction.  Thanks for the comments.

Took these photos today (handheld) with my Canon T2i and a Tamron 90mm macro.  Image Stability, blah, who needs it :)
