Nice! I like your kookaburra shot and the really colorful bird with the yellow hair that reminds me of Donald Trump. What kind of bird is that?

My to least Fav comments are
"You must have a good camera" Usually followed by a discourse on their camera.
"I've got a picture like that, I took in on my phone" Usually followed by presenting an out of focused badly composed image.
Sorry but I can't resist.
No one has ever said "that image would look better with a bit more DR"

Adam, congratulations on your position and not to downplay your talent, but that lightning photo shows off the advantage of having the time to plan and wait for the perfect shot! The shot is really incredible and I've been in storms like that on some Fourteeners in the Rockies, so I understand the comments about your shorts! I've had the hair raised and felt the tingle, but haven't seen St. Elmo's Fire, so I guess that makes me lucky and stupid. I'll definitely have to check out the rest of your work!
Thank you, Macguyver. There was very little waiting for this particular photo. I had to rush up to the canyon from Flagstaff as I wasn't planning on being in the park on that day. I consider myself fortunate to be able to spend so much tie at the canyon which has allowed me to become very familiar with the terrain and the weather. I knew where I wanted to be to create this photo.
Here's another photo of lightning at the Grand Canyon created exactly 1 year earlier: http://adamschallau.photoshelter.com/#!/portfolio/G0000k0QQuS2DJXc/6

A most amusing and entertaining thread to read.
A thread kevetching about people complementing equipment, that is posted in a forum on a website almost entirely dedicated to discussions about camera gear.
I especially like reading the comments about how the equipment is not the important thing from posters who list all their equipment in their signature.
You guys are a hoot! LoL
The only comment I really dislike is actually meant as a compliment - someone or some group will see me wandering through a park etc. with a FF Canon and biggish lens of some sort, say something like "you must be a good photographer; could you take my/our photo?" and hand me a smartphone or point-and-shoot which I haven't a clue how to use, which makes me feel like an idiot; the resulting photo is probably dreadful, but luckily I don't get to see it....
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.

"...that's not a knife!"
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).
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?
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 meThat'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):
