Canon7D with f/2.8 300mm II + 2xTC, iso 400, 1/320 - 1/500  f/5.6

These are at the limits of resolution as the kingfisher was quite far away. I was hand holding the light combo with the 300mm + 2xTC. The kingfisher hovered with head dead still, dived and came up with his catch.
That first image is really cool Alan!  8)  For just a split second, I thought you had a hummer there!  Nice job!  Hard to catch these fast as rocket little guys!

Cool image... He seems to be very intense... Too bad so dark out at that time or heavy shade, sunlight would have lit up his coloring really nice.  I do like his interesting pose!  Nice image Renegade!

Thanks.  I also liked the pose.  Unfortunately it was dark

@Kernuak. Yes it is a pigeon. The wood it is perched on top of is a very old, weathered telephone pole. From there I saw him fly off to a larger pine tree if that helps.


Not sure if I've ever shared this one with the group here. I also realize that it's not a hawk after educating myself. I shot this in northern New Jersey. Can anyone ID it?

edit: had trouble with the insert tool the first few times


Is that a pigeon it's feasting on? That would help to size it. It's definitely a falcon, but I'm not sure it is quite big enough for a peregrine, plus I'm not familiar with North American distribution. The hood doesn't look as distinct as normal, but it could be a juvenile bird or it could be the angle.

The Crane is beautiful Ren... Wish we had some of those down here in Florida!  You guys have quite a variety of owls as well, no?

Pyrrhuloxia.  EOS 7D, 100-400 4-5.6 L IS, hand held, ISO 320 cropped in PhotoShop, white balance adjusted slightly to account for low late afternoon sunlight.

How did you do the sharpening?  I can see an outline all the way around the bird that is much noisier than the rest of the picture, I presume that's from whatever sharpening technique you used.

I don't think I sharpened this one.  It's possible that I did a bit of noise reduction on the background and perhaps the much noisier outline you see is the area inside my outline of the bird.  But, honestly, I don't see it, your eyes are better than mine.
