Here are a few photos I recently took of some Common Loons (and their babies). I used my 7D to get a higher frames per second rate and to get the crop "reach" for my 400 f/5.6L (I know this isn't a f/2.8, but I was pleasantly surprised with the sharpness). I used 200 ISO and generally shot at 5.6 or 6.3 with a shutter speed between 1/400 and 1/2000. These were shot from the deck of a pontoon boat, but the higher shutter speeds were able to overcome the slight movement of the boat (the water was pretty calm). Comments/helpful critiques are welcome.
A young Shag. Amazing green colour and the eyes. Emerald green.
