I would never fake or stage a "wildlife" picture :)

You may have fooled others, but not me. A common loon in a tree? Nice try! ;D

How about a groundhog in a tree?

OK, let's hijack this thread - its gone on long enough, anyway :-)

How about a great blue heron in a tree?

BTW - that loon etc in the tree was great!

Jackson_Bill, love that great blue heron shot!

+1...how about a juvenile AND an adult BCN Heron in the same Octopus tree? ;D

I would have been more impressed with an Octopus in an Octopus tree :)

While we are stretching..... how about cats in a tree? I used this picture last winter for Christmas Cards, and yes, that is the front of a canoe on the wall of my living room :)

Very nice..and lovely cats ;)

Nice Pee-Wee, Moobark!  We don't get the Easterns here but our similar ones don't like to pose for long(not quite as bad as warblers though)

Thanks ERHP. I found a gem in the wood-pewee sequence that may interest you. (7D, ISO320, 1/400s, F/6.3, 700mm)

serendipidy: that escaping moorhen was comical!

To Jack, click & rpt: Thanks for your encouragement. I tend to tunnel vision the bird so my backgrounds are usually poor. Here's what I think is a Bell's Vireo. Feel free to suggest otherwise! (7D, ISO1000, 1/400s, F/6.3, 700mm)

Thanks, Moobark. These are very nice. I love the expressions on their faces.  :)

Two very different birds both photographed early this AM and both on the same tree at the same time.  The eagle watched with curiosity as the magpie hopped from branch to branch.  Shot in available light, on monopod, 1DX and 600II.

Nice! I like the iridescent colors of the magpie's feathers.

Pileated Woodpecker, Baltimore Oriole, Blue Jay, Canada Goose, and Common Loon... with a red fox watching...

I was outside taking a picture of the crescent moon and Venus and a flock of Canada Geese flew through the picture....

Nice capture, Don.

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 7D Mark II Talk [CR1]

I, for one, am a bit tired of my bodies being "video oriented". My 5DII, 7D and 60D have not shot a second of video. I guess I'll just have to hang on to them until the pendulum swings a bit in the other direction.

I likewise am fed totally up with video. I want a stills optomized camera. I don't care about video.

However, I am sure that they are working on a new sensor for the 7D mk II. The 70D sensor will go for the XXXDs for a while and likely also the M-2....

Focus the camera on stills improvement and I will be happy. I want better AF, better build quality, and and at least two stops of improvement in ISO performance.

Video I don't care a rat for.

+1...never use it.

Yeah ... kind of wonder if that was put up after this thread was started...

Were you in China flapping your arms last year?  I was just wondering if that might have caused Hurricane Sandy...   ::)

Uh Oh...now the lawyers know who to go after :o

I shot this while sitting in stopped traffic on a two lane country road with a 5D Mark III and a ef24-105 f4.0. The images was adjusted initially in Lightroom 5 with final adjustments in CS5.5"
