Female Pied Bush Chat (Saxicola caprata) by alabang, on Flickr

The Pied Bush Chat (Saxicola caprata) is a small passerine bird found  ranging from West and Central Asia to South and Southeast Asia. About  sixteen subspecies are recognized through its wide range with many  island forms. It is a familiar bird of countryside and open scrub or  grassland where it is found perched at the top of short thorn trees or  other shrubs, looking out for insect prey. They pick up insects mainly  from the ground, and were, like other chats, placed in the thrush family  Turdidae, but are now considered as Old World flycatchers.

They nest in cavities in stone walls or in holes in an embankment,  lining the nest with grass and animal hair. The males are black with  white shoulder and vent patches whose extent varies among populations.  Females are predominantly brownish while juveniles are speckled.

I went for a walk today, with the intent of taking pictures of snow-laden trees so I brought along a wide angle zoom and some pumpkinseeds to snack on.  I stopped to take pictures and pulled out my bag of seeds for a quick snack and  had a few chickadees show up.

normally I would laugh at the idea of songbird photography at 40mm.... But with these birds there was no problem getting close enough....
Cool! I have never experienced anything like that :)

Remarkable.

Lenses / Re: EF 400mm f/5.6L IS on the Way?
« on: December 28, 2013, 07:08:19 PM »
The current 400/5.6 prime is already optically better than the 70-200/2.8L IS II + 2x TC, and the bare zoom is better than the bare 200/2.8 prime.

Which is why there's no need for a 400/5.6L IS if the 100-400L is replaced.  The version II will very likely be better optically than the current 400/5.6L, have IS, focus just as well if not better, have better MFD and be able to zoom out as a bonus.  Sure it will be expensive but who thinks a 400/5.6L II will come in under $2,500?  The zoom will sell more and therefore benefit more from the cost reduction you get from volume production.

I don't disagree, at least from the consumer's perspective.  The zoom would be more popular.   As I stated, from a business perspective, the current 100-400L sells well...very well!  By some reports, Canon sells more 100-400's than 70-300L's, despite the latter being newer and sharper.  If Canon has both a new 100-400 and a 400/5.6 designed and production-ready, it might make business sense to release the new prime first, wait a couple of years, then release the new zoom.

I'm an old man...I don't know if I can wait that long ;D

Coming from a T3i, I was pleased with everything the 6D has to offer and I didn't really miss the 5dIII's AF system.

Lovely shots.

They only get heavily discounted 6 months after I buy one ( I'm not joking) :'(
You and me both - looking at the current double-dip deals going on, I could have saved well over $1,000 just on lenses if I had waited 6 months...
If you waited, a significant portion of your adult lives would have been spent without these lenses ... Buying was clearly the right decision :)
That's exactly how I look at it!

Me too! ;D

I thought I'd add one of my own to all of these cute dog photos.

Does your dog bite?  (A line spoken by Peter Sellers in the movie "The Pink Panther Strikes Again")

Source" Wikipedia

Inspector Clouseau: [gesturing to the hotel's dog] Does your dog bite?
German hotelier: No.
[Clouseau bends down to pet the small dog; it attacks and viciously bites him.]
Inspector Clouseau: I thought you said your dog did not bite!
German hotelier: That is not my dog.
