Hiked to a remote point - captured an amazing range of birds. Here are two.
Martha's Vineyard -  60D with a 100-400mm
American Oystercatcher and a Black Skimmer.  ( the Skimmer breeding range is expanding Northward it seems.)
Nice pic's. The Skimmer in flight looks great :)

+1 :)

Serendipidy - thanks, maybe I'm not practised enough but I find birds in flight are so hard to do well. I wonder how many keepers the real professional guys get from a trip. No doubt they have a way higher hit rate but it would be nice to know they miss shots too!

BIF are difficult to master...I'm still trying to learn how to do it well. Good equipment and practice is what I have deduced from this forum. Your shots are well on the way. :)

Lenses / Re: 300 f/2.8L and 400 f/2.8 at f/2.8

They replaced the entire lens mount, along with the entire focusing assembly.  It works really awesome now, much faster.  Apparently the screws couldn't go into the barrel anymore, and everything was loose.  According to the paperwork, they checked back/front focusing and everything passed QC specs.  Looks like it's good to go.

Glad everything worked out well for you :)

Canon General / Re: Seabird colony - change lens or not?

It actually was, it was brilliant.  Apart from my eyes burning up and having frantic boat staff flushing my eyes out with bottled water it really was a great day.

You certainly have my respect and admiration. 8)

Oh aye!

It was roosting season, the slipway was right in amongst their nests, some of the folk without hats had blood drawn!

My eyes were like golf balls after they crapped on me.

Sounds like a lot of fun to me ::)

I suggested a new topic (in another thread recently) entitled :
"What I went through to get the shot". I think this would certainly qualify and earn the participants the coveted Photographer's Purple Star of Valor :)

Since this thread started off as bird portraits, here's a family portrait.

Duck shots added too for the heck of it.

5D3 and 300mm 2.8 IS

Nice shots. The last one looks like he is water skiing ;)

HDR - High Dynamic Range / Re: Post your HDR images:

Shot taken from the top of the Bowder Stone in Borrowdale, English Lake District. The stone is a huge lump of rock about 30' high, and has often been thought an erratic, though it looks pretty clear to me that it's fallen off the mountain side.

Taken on 5D mk2, 17-40 L. Hand blended exposures in photoshop.

Lovely...so tranquil.
