At Building Panoramics the only thing that we usually shoot with wings are flying buttresses  ;D

But here are two pics of a Woodpecker feeding it's young. Taken with the mk2 and a 300 mm f4 plus 1.4X converter, positioned about 10 feet away from the tree and fired by wireless remote.


Great feeding shot.

Great egret and laughing gull on Sapelo Island, Georgia. Always fun to capture grab shots of "dock" birds when I'm heading on/off the island.
Canon 6D & 50D, nice set of lenses

Long time reader, first time poster on CR.

I just started with photography as an hobby last year, learning the basics mostly from trial and error and reading on forums like CR.
This photo was taken during a 4x4 trip in Namibia last December.

I think its a Pale Chanting-goshawk, please correct me if I'm wrong :)

Shot with a 600D and the 70-300L.

I regret that I did not get the 7D, as when I compared cameras on location the AF was quite a bit more accurate.

Still waiting on the announcement of the mythical 7D Mark II....

Thanks Harv...I'm still trying to learn from guys like you and Krob78 and Gary and many others who are always posting such amazing wildlife photos. You guys set the bar high.

Yesterday, I discovered a mother wild duck and her 2 babies in the drainage ditch bordering my house. Taken with 7D, 100-400L @400mm all f/6.3, ISO320-500, handheld. Aggressively cropped and over-processed in DPP. Any constructive critiques welcomed. Thanks. :)
