A common turn taken with a 500f4 mk2 at speed and its pin sharp. All afternoon for a couple of shots.

Great shot Mick. Nice and sharp. Well done.

+1...beautiful. One good tern deserves another. ;D

Not quite an exotic.... Canada goose and goslings sleeping in the sunlight, shot with SX-50, 1/125 second, F5.6, 500mm equivalent zoom.
The best camera is the one in your hands

Not exotic but we can't all have humming birds and flamingos on our doorstep!

5D3 and 300mm f2.8 IS mk1 - f5 1/1000th ISO640 +2/3rds


Pigeon with anti-gravity belt! I like it!


Yup, seems like the birds are onto something - must've borrowed it from him:




All that is fine but remember it is my Nobel prize winning theory!

I love the 4th image ejenner!  Exquisite!
I guess this thread has developed from a 'portrait only' to include BIF.  I'm stoked to be able to contribute, up until now 95% of my shots have been in the Denver Zoo, but this month I got a 7D primarily for shooting kids sports.

It may be the most expensive $850 I've ever spent because the 70-200 f4 IS is the longest lens I have.  The last 3 were with a 1.4TC.

First one was taken a couple of years ago from a bedroom window.  The others recently at Ferril lake in Downtown Denver. 

#1.  hawk?  sorry my expertise is still minimal (EDIT: just found a picture, I think it might be a Young-ish Cooper's Hawk).   T1i, 70-200 f4 IS @ 200mm f4 1/30s ISO400 (got lots of blurry shots)
#2 BCN Heron. 7D 70-200 f4 IS + 1.4TC I @ 280mm f5.6 1/6400s ISO:800
#3 American White Pelican  f5.6 1/2500s ISO:400
#4 Snowy Egrets jostling for the prime spot, f5.6 1/1000s ISO:800 (probably had a polarizer on)

Still trying to figure out the best combination of shutter speed and ISO for BIF shots, but tending towards ISO:800 because with NR the noise is manageable and my tracking needs work.

Lovely picture!

Question:
What were you doing to get such a dirty look from the bird?
