Snowy Owl, Norton Point, Mass.
Temps warmed to a balmy 20 degrees F. I hiked across three miles of frozen sand dunes and beaches for the shot. I mention this as I had a 7D and a 100-400mm and they worked like a charm in the cold.

Song Sparrow in a lobster trap. Some photographers use feeders for bird shots, thought I would try something different.

American Kestrel, balancing in the wind. 7D MkII, 1.4x III, 100-400 Mk II

My favorite raptor !  Also a great example of 7D Mk2 and 100-400 mk2 with extender. Was the shot handheld ?

Look familiar ?

Menemsha harbor, on Martha's Vineyard.  The harbor Quint ( Robert Shaw ) had his shark shack and boat moored in the original movie Jaws.

Seldom seen ( two years ago last pict. taken ) arctic sea bird seen fishing in Menemsha harbor. Probably blown in on the last storm. Very small - about 8 inches  (20 cm)
(also an  Atlantic Silverside )

Prairie Falcon.  I find these birds almost impossible to photograph.  They have superb vision and they are sensitive to the slightest movement, so they can see you coming from a long way off.  They are also extremely high energy birds who are quick to fly.  Getting close to one requires supreme patience and a ton of good luck.  I got lucky with this bird.  Or, perhaps, it was a bit more tolerant of humans because it is a juvenile and naive.  Whatever, I'm pleased that I got this shot.

5Diii, 400 DO, ISO 500, aperture preferred setting, f6.3 @ 1/2000, exposure compensation 1 2/3 stops.
Congrats, great capture

Loggerhead Shrike.  Not an easy bird to find or to photograph.

5Diii, 400 DO, ISO 400, aperture preferred setting, f6.3 @ 1/3200
Nice find and great shot - Loggerheads have all but disappeared from the east coast.

If I have a down year, financially, or don't like the direction their taking the product, I don't want to have to pay ransom to keep using the software I've been paying for all along. That's too much risk for me. I'm staying with CS6 and stand-alone LR for just this reason, so they're not getting any more money from me whereas I'd be willing to pay for a maintenance plan.

Ditto !
