After 4 hours of shoveling snow, I went for a walk... I spotted this Snowy Owl on top of a hydro pole... the only lens I had with me was a 70-200, but in spite of the short reach it came out ok.... (Image is heavily cropped)  Santa, I could use a 600F4 this year.... I've been very good :)


Beautiful bird. Nice shot Don.

Yesterday, a rival tried to intrude on Harry's feeding grounds and he chased the newcomer off. I was lucky and caught some of the action with the 5D3 and 100-400L.

Unfortunately, $h!t happens. Frequently, expensive $$$hit.  If your wife needed medical care, would you take her to the local clinic (the one that already misdiagnosed her once), or to the research hospital in the city?   "Your other girlfriend" is sick, send her to Canon ASAP.

Black-crowned Night Heron (Nycticorax nycticorax) by alabang, on Flickr

The Black-crowned Night Heron (Nycticorax nycticorax), commonly abbreviated to just Night Heron in Eurasia, is a medium-sized heron found throughout a large part of the world, except in the coldest regions and Australasia (where it is replaced by the closely related Rufous Night Heron, with which it has hybridized in the area of contact).

Settings: 1/640 ƒ/5.6 ISO 640 800mm


Very nice capture. :)

Just to carry on the Xmas theme, Munchie our pet rabbit waiting in anticipation of Xmas day....

... about 10-seconds before he decided eating the wire to the lights was a better idea  :(


That almost looks like a Christmas tree on his back. :)

Thanks RienzPhoto, rpt, Click and Dylan777.

December seems to always be one of the best month's for sunsets in the San Diego area.  This one was taken five minutes down the Silver Strand from where I work.  The Arleigh Burke destroyer anchored finally making it possible to do a long exposure.  10" : f/14 : ISO 100 : 5D MK III : Canon 24-70 V1 @ 70mm



Superb colors


+1...What an absolutely gorgeous photo. I just love those colors. Magnificent!

Thanks guys: Afraid to say its a captive Eagle. I have a bird of prey center near me that offers some excellent photo ops both like this and in flight / hunting. I have some more if you want to see them?
It does not matter if it is a captive eagle or not.... that is a great picture!

I don't think I would join any club that didn't want me for a member ;D

PS- Lots of places define professional as getting any payment (even once and for any amount) for your work. Recently, a US college basketball player had to forego a monetary prize ( I think it was $20,000) for a half court shooting contest that he won, because, if he accepted the prize money, it made him a "professional" basketball player and thus ineligible to continue to receive his college scholarship.

Common Brown butterfly. Resting on the side of my house, waiting to warm up in the coolness of the morning.



After a few minutes, it started to slowly pump its wings, as the sun started to shine. A minute or so after this pic, it took off. Probably didn't help having a macro lens 200mm away, flash popping off :)


Wow! Lovely and great detail.

I have the same problem on my macbook pro using safari. This all started several weeks ago. Until then, I never noticed this. Something has changed with the site.
