The Eurasian Sparrow hawk is shot from behind the windows in my garden.
This shot from a Common Kingfisher is also from 5 meters behind some bushes (that was the SX40)

Awesome. Beautiful shot.

Gorgeous. I am so jealous. I would print this and put it on my living room wall.

I just want to read about Canon cameras and photography. My monthly magazines contain no controversial material. I don't like it when a thread goes on and on, and it has nothing to do with Canon cameras.  Facebook and Twitter are great places for stuff that people feel strongly about. Fortunately, this is not Twitter or Facebook. And I don't want to read about anybody's personal problems. Just about somebody's personal experiences with Canon cameras. Not about their vendettas against Canon Inc, or other people.

On with the show. Still waiting for DIII's to drop to Christmas prices. I am going to have to spend money someday.

Well said!  (I bet you speak Swedish, too ;D)

I like birds and enjoy seeing these shots and I'm now also photographing them with my new Canon gear.  Seeing the shot is great but I personally would really like a little background on the shot (how, when, where, maybe) and what it was shot with and even settings if feasible, so that I can learn something.  Or, in case I'm posting then someone else can benefit.  Of course for me to post and include such information is more work and I might feel lazy about it but I'm thinking we should all make an effort in this regard.  No??

Jack

You are absolutely right on. It helps to know this stuff to learn. It just takes a little more effort and time to post this data. Here is some info from my last 8 photos taken yesterday. All were with my 7D, 70-200mm 2.8L ISii taken from my yard next to a drainage ditch/small canal a little after 5 PM. Sun was behind me. The ditch has tilapia fish and attracts a few water birds (ducks, moorhens, night herons). Now, since I have been feeding them with bread at suppertime, they wait for me for a free handout. ;D

Here's the exif on the shots (all were standard style and AWB):
1)f/7.1, 1/320, ISO 250, @200mm, one shot
2)f/6.3, 1/1600, ISO 250, @140mm AI Servo high speed continuous
3)f/4.5, 1/800, ISO 400, @200mm, AI Servo HS
4)f/7.1, 1/200, ISO 400, @200mm, one shot

5)f/7.1, 1/250, ISO 200 @200mm, one shot
6)f/7.1, 1/200, ISO 320, @140mm, one shot
7)f/6.3, 1/1600, ISO400, @130mm, AI Servo HS
8)f/6.3, 1/1600, ISO250, @ 145mm, AI Servo HS

Cheers 8)

This kind of reminds me of lunch after a politician's funeral. Some sit around and talk about how they're glad he's gone, others say, "he will be missed", and some find a window and look at squirrels.

We need more windows :)

I think squirrels are cuter and smarter anyway. ;D
