Dropped my beloved 300L F4 IS a few weeks ago. No physical damage but the IS stopped working. Sent to Canon a fre weeks ago, picked it up from Purolator this morning and went on a road strait away.

Back in action. Taken with my 7D.

Hey Digital, glad to hear you're back up and running with your 7D!  Great images!  Looks like you caught him right after he ate with the blood on his face and on his talons!  Nice details!  8)

Brazilian Cardinal from my yard this afternoon. 7D, 100-400L @ 400mm. Handheld, F8, 1/125, ISO 400, with Better Beamer 580 flash, EC -1 2/3.

Source:Wikipedia
The Red-crested Cardinal (Paroaria coronata) is a bird species in the tanager family (Thraupidae). It was formerly placed in the Emberizidae, and notwithstanding its common name, it is not very closely related to the true cardinals (family Cardinalidae).

It is found in northern Argentina, Bolivia, southern Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical dry shrubland and heavily degraded former forest. Among other regions, it is found in southern part of the Pantanal.

It has also been introduced to Hawaii and Puerto Rico.
That is an absolutely beautiful bird!  He seems to be missing his feet though!  Really gorgeous bird!

Okay, so here's one.  I'm trying to keep it a little more realistic.  I may try one a bit more radical as well, just for giggles...

Ken, I assume you've been using the old trick?
You know, the old fish on your head and then keep very still....
Indeed!   ;D  My girlfriend doesn't appreciate the smell of my hair particularly but I come home with some decent images from time to time!    ::)
It doesn't look to be "from time to time". Keep them coming.
Thanks BJD, that was quite nice of you to say, I appreciate that!

So obviously I need to have my eyes checked. I don't see any lively creatures...  ;)
If only it had occurred to me to take some shots to create HDR pictures when I went to the Grand Canyon!

Gary, great picture as usual.
Hmm, may be time to go back through my Grand Canyon and Red Rock Canyon photos...  ;)

Update on Sigma 35mm. I took it in locally and they saw I was AFMA to +10 and they actually put it at about +15 internally so my camera is spot on and I am at 0 in camera. That makes this lens that much sweeter. Glad I took it in. If you buy a Sigma and it seems off send it in is my advise.
Yay!  Sounds like you have a keeper now! :)
