My heron friend waits for me every afternoon to go fishing with him. He is still afraid to get closer than about 8 feet. When I run out of bread, he flies over and lands on the concrete bridge wall about 8 feet from me and just stares at me, until I leave. Today he caught about 5 or 6 fish (2 were fairly good sized). One tiny fish jumped out of his beak and landed in the water and got away. Another bigger one flipped out of his beak, but wasn't close enough to the water and got recaptured rather quickly.
7D, 100-400L @160mm and 400mm, f/6.3

Sounds awesome. I wish I could do similar trips. When you're going? How detailed trip plan you already have, or do you just go around without much plan?

Serendipity rules.

Thanks, Jack and Click. I also am waiting to see what the 7D2 will be like ( but not the new price). And a new 100-400L II might also be a good improvement.

I was in Bali last week and I hired a driver to take me off the beaten path. We rounded a curve and saw some wild monkeys just off the side of the road. I figured they would scatter, but they actually came closer to check me out. The driver explained that the monkey is sacred in Bali and they are not hunted or harmed. Therefore, they really have no fear of man. This mom and baby were about six feet from me, watching two other monkeys chasing each other, when I shot this...


Love it. Great capture!

+1...the look on their faces  :)

Thanks Gary, Viggo, Click.

Getting to this place is a bit of a cut lunch & water bottle trip, but worth it when you get there, especially onboard these small ships that work North of the Islands up into the Ice Pack, we were as high as 83 degrees North, so at times only 500 Kilometres from the Pole looking for Bears on the Ice.

The Stockholm had the advantage of being rated for Ice, plus it had just 6 Cabins, on this trip there were only 10 People total, only disadvantage was speed, 10 Knots was Her cruising speed, but the 1950's style was a pleasure to experience.

Absolutely fantastic. What an adventure! Great job, Edward. What is that object (to me it looks like a great white shark with something in its jaws leaping out of the water) just in front of the ship?

edit: Oh, I see...it's just a bird 8)

This is the meanest woman I know. She sits here throughout the day and chases off the other hummingbirds and sometimes she even goes after the woodpeckers.

I think she has a thing for you and she's chasing away the competition ;D
