Awesome. Beautiful sunrise.  8) Well done.
Thank again for the nice comment and here's one of my reptilian buddies from that morning and are a couple more sunrise shots:

Hey Mack, what county you in?  I'm over in Lake County...

Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo. As I arrived home this evening, 3 of them flew up to a nearby tree. I realised that it was 2 parents and a young one (the young one makes a constant calling sound). One of the parents had a cone from a Banksia tree (located in my front garden). They were stripping the cone for the seeds (much like a pine cone). This one, a parent, patiently sat in a tree, as I raced inside to collect the camera and tripod. 2min after this pic, they flew off to a neighbors Hakea bush to continue feeding :)

I'm tentatively calling this one "Mouse performing endoscopy on American Kestrel, Part I."
Nice one Steven!  Such a hard capture with these little guys!  Did you grab this one with your 400mm?  I find that the Kestrels are flighty and not real tolerant of company!   :)

That second image, he could just be the Gene Simmons version of Kestrels!

I used and had no issues.  I think they charge like $1.99 or something but it worked perfectly with my 7D.  :)

A lot prettier than my last Post on this thread, it's a wonderful experience to shoot these Wild Dogs anywhere in the wild, I wasn't expecting them in Tanzania, and I certainly didn't expect to photograph them right on Sunset, the colouring of these Guys is about perfect at anytime, but with sunrise/sunset, just Beautiful.

Beautiful Edward!  Thank you!

Very nice Ken. How many exposures did you use for this shot?

I like it too.  8)

Thank you!  I used 3 exposures Click.  I can't remember for sure if I went 1/3 per exposure or 2/3rds... but I think it was 2/3rds... I just recently started exploring the "in camera" hdr effect.  It's a bit limiting but works rather nicely in most instances so far... I don't think it's as good as taking the images to an editor and applying 3-5 exposures but it's pretty impressive for "in camera" I think...

Clouds at sunset. What do you see?

A lady kissing a frog?
A panther taking a bite out of the sun?
I love the panther eating the sun! Great capture!

Looks like a Shark getting ready to swallow the sun to me, it even has the tail fin behind it! :D

Swedish sunset in March this year. It was a fantastic evening!

EXCELLENT! ... the in camera HDR of Canon 5D MK III is the best of any camera I've used, be it Nikon or Sony.
Agreed, surprisingly good!  I like this one too!  Beautiful color...

Great shots everyone!

Here's one of my first attempts at birds. This little fellow (parus major) stopped by this morning.

Canon 7D, 70-200 2.8 MK II with a Kenko 1.4 extender, f4 1/250 ISO 100

Nice job Phillip!

Here's a few taken with the 600mm IS II F4 on a 5D Mark III.  All shots hand held without color modifications


Two Cactus Wrens - note fruit juice (prickly pears from cactus) around their bill.  Their call is most unique and easy to ID as it sounds like a car having a tough time starting up on a cold morning.  Since 1931, they have been the Arizona State bird.  All shots taken in southern California.

Townsend's Warbler (11679) by Revup67, on Flickr

Note rows of "narrowly" drilled holes and protruding sap which attracts insects as well as Rufous Hummingbirds (dependent on season and regional location).   The Sapsucker returns for its dinner (sap and insects) while they cling to the sap.

The Ruby-crowned Kinglet (male) with its crowned raised.  The bird is next to impossible to find (though of Least Concern)..tiny and well camouflaged within the branches seeking aphids, caterpillars and the like.  The timing has to be precise as its crown is typically flattened and shows as sort of a red speck on its cap.

Nice job Rev!  I love that in the composition of the 1st image that both the Wrens are looking the same direction, nice!  I also love the Kestrel image, I'm partial to them, as you may remember!  Nice series, the sunset image is great too!  Well done!  :D

Awesome.  8) Great shot.  Well done Greenlander.
Excellent!  I'm glad the foreground is lit the way it is, really adds to the image overall, very nice!
