This one is from October of last year at Cuyamaca SP.  I missed the Osprey catching the fish but got to watch it devour almost the entire thing, down to pulling the last meat off the tail, before taking off and ringing the lake for more. 

7D, 600mm f/4 w/ 1.4TC III  1/1000th - f/7.1 - ISO 400

Good lord! Gravity seems to be malfunctioning at that spot. ;)

Lovely picture :)

LOL ;D

Maybe there is a little bird trampoline hidden just behind the rail. Really cool shot!

>:( I make this Nobel prize worthy discovery and you dismiss it of as a trick?

:P

Sorry rpt...I didn't realize the gravity of the situation 8)

I guess this is a Sparrow Hawk, after an unsuccessfull hunt in our garden this morning. Had to take it through the window, and its a very dull cold day here.

Serious matter this defying gravity stuff. This guy hasn't got the hang yet, or it doesn't work when you are wet. Whatever, he's still holding on. Didn't Douglas adams say "you just need to forget to fall down"?

A Bee-Eater from the looks of it. Dunno the name ... clicked with a 5D3 @ 400mm earlier this morning.

Actually, it looks like some form of blue flycatcher. The beak doesn't look right for a bee-eater, and I don't know that I've ever seen photos or illustrations of bee eaters with that kind of plumage...they almost always have green as a primary color in some form.

Thanks ... I checked this up in the field guide and found it ... finally. It is a Chestnut Bellied Rock Thrush

Not the best loon picture ever, but this is the untouched image (center crop only) of a shot taken with an SX-50 p/s camera from a kayak while being bounced around in whitecaps. I am very surprised that it came out as good as it did. I'll have to play with the RAW file when I get home....
The best camera is the one in your hands
