Some more Northern gannets - Bempton, E. Yorkshire.

70D, Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 OS for the first image, Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 OS with Canon 1.4x TC for the other two.

(Hmmm... uploading via the forum really kills the image quality).

They look great - like the perspective.

Hi All,


Anyway, hope you enjoy the pics, I'm happy to post some more (plenty more where these came from) if people are still curious about the performance of the 70 - 200 with 2x extender.

Wonderful birds, really sharp images. I enjoyed them.

The first two are the Egret running after fish in a marsh.
The last pict is a plumage display that says: "my fishing spot !"

Low tide  Oregon coast, on a foggy summer morning.

Like the mystic feel of the haystack pict. Reminds me of CGI landscapes I would create with "Bryce". Nice to see it captured in the real world.

An interaction between an osprey and an eagle at Oxbow Bend in Grand Teton Natl Park
The osprey caught a fish and the eagle hassled him until he dropped it
The eagle took the fish
and the osprey tried to get it back, but no luck

best I could do hand holding the 500

Great series, something you don't see everyday !

The northern bald ibis, hermit ibis, or waldrapp (Geronticus eremita)

very nice - I had to look this bird up. Apparently not many left in the world.
