Fabulous shots Ken, all of them.
Where were they taken? There's certainly a great diversity there, must be a lot of food available.

Thank you very much Brian!  Most of these ones were taken near my home in Mount Dora, FL.  All of these last ones were on Lake Dora... Lots of Alligators too!  Mating season and they are going crazy!  They're all over the place..   Saw a Great Blue Heron standing on top of one a couple days ago, pounding the gator's head with his beak!!  Sadly, I was on a quick run to pick the kids up from school and didn't have any gear with me... I never think of pulling out my iPhone for a quick photo, that would have worked I suppose...

Funny to see anyway!

Hopefully he will not explode ;)

Hmmm, so what would be the correct shutter timing required to capture that?
Questions, questions, questions.......

He did take one hell of a dump before he flew off the sandbar later on...do we call that "exploding"? :P

Hmm...you know me. We COULD get into that...physics and math and all...and a nasty, roiling, stinky white liquid mass floating through the air... (Might be a bit graphic for even this forum, though! :P)

You've got a knack for birds in flight. All of these, the eagles, the osprey, really great shots.

Jon, Thank you, you're very kind!  That's a fantastic pelican image btw!  I have had a couple White Pelican opps in the last two days but they are just a little too far out with my 100-400m on my FF.  I think they wouldn't be much better on my 7d either...  Someone gave me a lead on some nearby, so maybe tomorrow!

Thanks again for your kind words! :D

Yeah, 400mm on FF is a bit short. I don't think I could go lower than 600mm on FF. That is one of the reasons I value the 7D...it really gets you that needed reach in a pinch. I can't wait to plop a 600mm on my 7D. Even with the added reach, 400mm on the 7D still means I have to get close enough often enough that birds move away, or fly off. Having ~970mm equivalent would allow me to sit outside that bubble of comfort and get even better shots (sharper lens, wider aperture, lower ISO.)
