If it has wings, it's a bird, right?  ;)

This Red-bellied Woodpecker has been visiting our seed feeder since late Spring.  A few days ago, I noticed a different chirping and saw it brought a guest.  Likely a newly fledged baby came with the parent.
First picture:  The fledgeling waiting for its parent to feed it.
Second photograph: The parent, a male red-bellied woodpecker, picked a sunflower seed and shelled it for the young bird.  Note the seed in the beak.
I tried to photograph the feeding process, but by the time I added my 2Xii, the young bird moved behind the tree trunk.
For the first photo, I used 5d3 with 70-200 LII, handheld.  the second was taken with my 2Xii, also handheld.  Neither was cropped.

Here's a great egret from a couple weeks ago lit by late evening setting sunlight. The bird looks like it is about to lose a feather.

Beautiful light in your picture. Very nice shot.

Not best shot... but I like this. It was taken with a Powershot SX50 HS

@215mm that's a 35mm equivalent of 1200mm ! 

Handheld.

The lack of DR is evident... but I am not complaining for the price. again, great value, this much reach and IS, for less than $500.

That looks great...especially for a P&S camera @1200mm equivalent.

My Heron fishing buddy returned today and was waiting for me. He was able to catch 2 fish right off the bat.
