All shots: 40D and 300mm f2.8 IS mk1.

During a falconry display there were 3 or 4 gulls mobbing the eagle which didn't seem to get too stressed. The shot kinda makes it look like a well-trained stunt team  ;D

The shot of the cygnet was just dumb luck - hey look ma! I can wheelie!

California Brown Pelican taken with a Canon 7D, 70-200 2.8 IS II, 580 EX II flash and a Better Beamer flash extender, 1/1600th at 2.8 with flash on high speed sync. 

Sadly, my whole bag of gear was stolen shortly after this with almost $18,000 lost and no insurance.  I had sold everything to buy a sailboat and do an adventure travel show from LA to Australia over 6 months and shoot a ton of still as well.  The theft kind of killed my budget and after a few more setbacks, I had to bail on the trip.  Anyone want to buy a boat?

Still don't have another camera and almost throw up when I think of my gear, see shots I want to take or people with their cameras. So pretty much constantly.  :'( Protect your gear and make sure you have proper insurance when traveling.

Wow!  Great shots.  Can't believe how good they are at ISO 800!  Can you tell me what lens/converter combo you used for the ones listed as 840mm?

Just returned from the Kruger National Park in South Africa.

All these shot with 7D and 100-400L.

The bateleur is eating a terrapin, think it was squashed by a car.

EOS 1D X, EF 600mm f/4L IS II + EF 2x III Extender.  The gauzy look comes from shooting through a bush right in front of the lens, the combo is quite sharp, and delivers beautiful (or rather ugly, in the case below ;) ) images.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Guy...fantastic shots.   Really like the second and third..in the second, it looks like the eagle is about to catch the gull, did it?
Look closer, it's not a robin.
