Shot this Guy in the Serengeti, he was probably the only Cheetah I've found that was really easy to Focus on, still, just in case, I shot him/Her @ 1/800th, you never know with Cheetahs.

1Dx 200-400f/4, 400mm f/4.5 1/800th ISO 400

Cheetah IS version 2? ;)

RE to: It is not the camera but the photographer that counts.

I totally agree to this. But some animals are very good behind the camera too. (unedit quick and dirty JPG crop in lowres, edited RAW original image with different crop was for Canon marketing).

Is that what they mean when they say chimping the camera? ;D

Some taken this afternoon in my yard of Japanese White-eyes (Mejiro). 5D3, 100-400L.
Lovely shots.  Excellent focus on the birds!  What were your settings?

Thanks CT John. All were handheld and using only ambient light while I stood on a ladder next to the tree (honey bees buzzing all around the flowering tree).
All were AE priority, f/5.6, 400mm (all heavily cropped and some PP in DPP), auto WB, auto ISO ( 1st 2 were 640 and last 2 were 320 ISO), spot AF one shot, TV was 1/400s for #2 and rest were 1/320s.

If you click on the photo, it takes you to my Flickr. There at the bottom on the extreme right lower side is 3 little dots together. If you click on the 3 dots, a menu pops up and the bottom item is "show EXIF data". Click on that and it lists all the EXIF.

I like your Kauai wild fowl photo. They are so colorful.

This is disgusting.  People taking pictures of beautiful songbirds and here I sit in Alberta with 10" of snow and -25C.  It is sunny though and I do at least have Chickadees that visit me ;)

That's some cold weather for November!  I won't give you the details of my weather in Florida - instead I'll post a bird that makes my climate seem cold - with the caveat that it was captive (and I should get rid of that distracting bokeh spot):



mackguyver,

Beautiful colors and nice sharp focus on the eye.

Guy in 2 has mental health problems.
That's a cruel assessment of one of our more prominent members...........   :'(

Very true.  The Guy in 2 doesn't have mental health problems.  He is clearly the best photographer ever.

+1...and look how happy he is too! ;D

Here are three owls: an Eastern Screech Owl, a Great Horned Owl, and a Barred Owl.

Great owl shots - are they all wild?  If so, I'm extremely impressed.  If not, they are still beautiful photos, but I will know you, too, are a mere mortal.  I love owls, but they are so freaking hard to find out in the wild!  Here's my best owl shot to date - a very noisy little Barred Owl:



Great shot!

In India there is a common insult dished out with the phrase "Ullu ke Patthe", the literal translation of which works out to "Owl's disciple". Owls are considered pretty dumb birds and the phrase "Ullu ke Patthe" is used to call someone an "Idiot". Most average Indians use this phrase a fair few times in a day!

Very few Indians can look at an owl shot without a chuckle.   

Cheers ... J.R.


In parts of the western world, owls are considered wise (even though they are not).
"The origin of the wise owl dates all the way back to Greek mythology. The owl represents Athena who was the goddess of wisdom."-source: Yahoo voices, Rachel Ellis, Yahoo Contributor Network

Looks natural to me. I don't think I would have guessed HDR. Wish we had pretty fall colors like that here in Hawaii (leaves are either green or dead brown).

But on the other hand, in January you'll be Hawaii - and I'll be in Michigan looking at snow and bare trees, and freezing!

Good point ;D

That's it !!, Cheetah IS, and for all those Canon Knockers saying Canon are no longer being innovative, Canon have brought "Cheetah IS" to the Market first, Take that Nikon !!! & Sony to.
