Hello,
This is my first post here, but I do love this site.  Great information and above all, encouragement.  I play tennis weekly at a buddy's 50 acre avocado ranch in Cayucos, California.  There is a large Gummy tree which is home to Red-tailed hawks and Kingbirds.  The Kingbirds seem to harrass the flying adults constantly, but leave the fledglings alone.  These shots were taken with a Canon 6D and EF 100-400mmL lens.
Thanks for sharing any thoughts with me.

Hey guy's not been online in a while but here are 2 from a shoot the other day with the 1dx and 85 1.2LII :-)

Lovely shots - first one is my favorite.  1DX + 85L is a killer combination.

Hi, Menace. This appears to be a herring gull.

Hello dpc, 

Thanks for  you comment - I have checked my info again - check out the link below:

Regards.

Menace,
Always enjoy your pics, but have to agree with dpc..your pic is of a gull, not a gannet.  Look at the bill shape and coloration...not a blue-grey bill as seen on a gannet.  Also the head shape and eye is that of a gull.  Hope this helps.

Thanks guys :)

Night game during the rain.  I love how you can see the raindrops, it adds something to the scene.

That is great, Menace!

I'm amazed at the DOF you got, it's sharp from the tip of his nose almost back to the eyes! I would have thought a 400mm wide-open would give you about an inch!  :)

Thanks Old Shooter, I was standing a bit further back so as not to intimidate the cats (as pe the zoo keepers) hence greater DoF :)

Ta - feel free :)

Ta ?? sort of gives away your Origins Menace   ;D, last time I heard Ta used to say Thank You was my Mum, & I'm 64, I guess when I move back to Aus next month I'll hear a lot more of it.

Ha ha - I'm actually a Pom but been living in New Zealand for the last 8 Years!
