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.

The battery grip also works with the 70D according to the canon site. Nice deal.

Is this right? Seems unlikely to me - the 70D has its own dedicated battery grip, and the 70D is about 1cm narrower than a 7D. Please could you provide a link to the Canon site you mention - thanks.

Definitely a good deal, though, even if just for 7D users.

A heavily cropped picture of an egret... They are very shy and one has to stay hidden and still for a long time for them to wander even this close.... Shot with a 60D and Tamron 150-600 at 600mm and F9.0.

The neck is very snake-like when they are walking towards you...
I feel your pain - stalking these birds is a pain. Very shy and they see you coming a LONG way off. The trick is to live in or visit areas where they are common, then you just run into them on occasion. I got some of my best shots pulled off the the road near a marsh.
