Tri Colored Heron Portrait~

Wonderful shot. That creamy background is awesome...really helps enhance the subject. Getting that kind of background was one of the key reasons I got the 600/4, it really does wonders for subject isolation.
Thank you Jon!  I appreciate your comments.  The 600/4 and the 300/2.8 are both on my list... just for that reason too!  Well, the 600mm for the reach of course too!  These were with the 70-200 2.8 II.  I haven't taken her out for awhile, I've been shooting a lot more this year with my 100-400mm since picking up the 5dIII last Christmas.  The 5dIII made my 100-400mm like a whole new lens!  I was getting ready to sell it because I got better results with my 70-200 on my 7d than I did with the 100-400mm.  Glad I bought the 5d3 first!  Thanks again!

We're having a snowy owl invasion in Maine -- had bad luck with the weather so far, this is what i got. Canon 70d + 400mm 5.6L
Beautiful! I'm jealous... There are supposed to be snowy owls in Ontario where I live nut I have never seen one, let alone get a picture like that! Congratulations!

I'm jealous to Don!  I've been looking all over Central Florida and haven't spotted one yet...  :(

So far we have seen 4 snowy owls out here. There is a report of one on Bermuda !
PS. I think that photo is of a young female.

Nice!  Love how the water has that sort of dreamy look.
 

Really an excellent image!  A "must love" image!  :)

Ripper shots, I really love the Kea Menace. Dolina yet another great shot!

Little Pied Cormorant sunning before it nests for the night.

Great shot and what a beautiful bird.  I love seeing all of the other species from other parts of the world - I've never seen one of these or many of the other birds you guys on the other side of the world are posting.  Keep up the great work!

Agreed!  We have lots of Cormorants but I've not seen one like this before!  The majority of ours are like these little fellas...

Shot with 7D and 100-400L  f/5.6, 1/1600sec, ISO 250

I photographed this bird on Thanksgiving
Nice one.  Red Shouldered Hawk!  We've got lots of them around my area!  Not real camera shy either!

Eye of the...
Well, Alligator!  ;D

There is something eerie about the reptilian eye.

Indeed!  Quite prehistoric in a way...

Looks like you had a great time of it in San Fran... Harry must miss you though! ;)
