It's been a while since I've posted.  I photographed this egret yesterday at Dana Point, Ca.  5D iii, 100-400 F 4-5.6 @400 mm, ISO 640, F8 @ 1/8000.  Cropped, and that's about it.
Great image Steve!  Thought I was in the 1dx forum for a minute there...  :)

Great shot.  8) The bird seems weightless, we're having a gravity malfunction here.  ;D

Western Kingbird, natural perch, taken hand held with my new 600mm f/4 L IS II. This was, if you can believe it, the FIRST shot (or one from the first series of shots) taken with the new lens.  ;D

One of our local parks has several pairs of Black Necked Stilts that nested and are in the process of raising the chicks on the eastern lake.  Due to the lack of rain in SoCal so far this year, the lake is drying faster than usual but that presented me the opportunity to trudge through the mud behind a large reed bank to observe a pair of Stilt chicks and the parents foraging.  I also discovered where the mud is less stable, after sinking nearly up to my knees.

Awesome. I like the reflection in the water. Nicely done.

Fantastic shot! Love that little cluster of legs. :D

Fledgling Cooper's Hawk with snack.  There's a nest near our home and four chicks have fledged within the past few days.  They're like rambunctious kids at Chuck-ee Cheese, yelling, running around, and demanding that their parents attend to them.  The parents are hunting nonstop, but these little monsters have enormous appetites.
