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...

LOL...I think you win the "most bird species in one shot" category ;D

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]
« on: October 09, 2013, 12:26:28 AM »
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"

Moorhen running on the water to his nest with chunk of my bread.
You can see the splashes from his feet and also, around his path, you can see other water disturbances from where the fish startle with his commotion. ;D

A few more from the past several days. 5D3, 100-400L @400mm.

These two moorhens are a breeding pair and have a nest up the canal around the bend and out of sight. Whenever I start fishing with Harry the Heron, several minutes later, one of the moorhens comes swimming towards us as fast as his little legs can go. I don't know how they know I'm here. So I throw him a chunk of bread, and he runs along the bank (very funny gait ;D) towards the nest, and then, halfway there, he jumps in the water and literally runs on the water (flapping his wings to keep just his body in the air). After 5 minutes, he or both of them return for seconds and thirds in the same manner. It is late afternoon and the sun is low behind the mountains, so the light is not optimal, but I tried to capture this ritual.

Thanks, pinnaclephotography, for your nice reply. I was so impressed with the Lower Antelope canyon photos that I looked up your galleries on your website. Absolutely gorgeous! So many wonderful shots. I loved your light painting ones a lot. :)
