Catch and release?

The word for "doing wild life photography" in my language literary means "photohuniting" :)
+1 Except it's harmless for our "targets"  :) :) :)

Does that mean you like fishing?  Or you are chasing butterflies?   ;)

I do.
A day out on the lake on a boat is most excellent, catching a fish is the cream.

Not sure what hawk this is. Possibly a dark morph ferruginous? If anyone knows, please inform me.  :)

Hornbills in the wild. The male black hornbill is from the 400mm DO II +2xTC at 800mm on the 5dIV, the Rhinoceros Hornbill from my wife's 100-400mm II on the 5DSR at 40m - it had to be pushed by +3ev as it was very underexposed. The 5DSR is damn good.
5D IV, 5DS R, 400mm DO II, 1.4xTC III, 2xTC III, EF 1.8 STM,  EF 24-105, 100-400 II, EF-S 15-85, Sigma 150-600mm C, EOS-M5 15-45, f/2 22, 11-22, Samyang 8mm f/2.8 fisheye: sold 7D II, EOS-M, Powershot G3 X,  Sigma 10-20, EF 300/2.8 II, 70-200/4 IS.

I can't guess but I'll try to remember to do some checking.  Now for a question, were you able to coax him off there to try some BIF?  That would be fun!

Alan both are great but of course the second is the best.  But they say you can't work Canon RAWs, not enough DR.

In this beautiful fall season, birds are starting to leave us for the winter.

I have found this one, while kayaking this morning.  :)

Well, he just sat there looking around for ground squirrels I'd guess. I parked across the grid road from his perch, possibly 20 metres away (I'm not good at judging distances), but he didn't budge. He just eyed me occasionally. He eventually flew off. I didn't get a BIF because his nether regions were facing me.  :)

I know that herons are a pretty common subject, so forgive me if they are considered trite, but it was a good day, so I thought I'd share a few.

In my opinion, no bird is considered trite. A good picture is a good picture. Like others have said, because it may be easy to capture for you, doesn't mean they are for everyone else around the world. Great pictures. Keep on posting.
