Saw him/her get the kill, but my shots of that were a little blurry because it happened so fast.  But got the 'portrait' afterwards.

Some pics from a recent trip to the Isle of May in the Firth of Forth, Scotland.


I love your first picture of the Atlantic Puffin at the top.

Very nice shots Guy.

Very nice. And, yeah, if this BIF stuff was done with film, I'd be broke by now ;)

Guy,
Your puffin photos are getting better and better with each post!  Wonder how wonderful it would be with the next sets.  Keep coming with new images.

Mr Bean,
I remember film days.  I count my shots.  Not really firing like a "Vulcan rotary gun", where you spray and prey.  Glad shooting 1s and 0s cost minimally, except the initial cost of the kit AND time to play.
Hope you like the hummies.

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.

Great shots. I really like the last one. Nicely done.

Mick - great shots of the Shag. Where did you take the shots? I could've taken something similar on the trip I was on last week but time was short and I headed up to some clifftops rather than staying down by the water's edge where the Shags and Arctic Terns hung out.

I'm thinking of selling my 300mm to get the new 500mm mk2 - any comments or tips on using the lens? I plan on hiring one a the end of the month for an airshow (I'll be using it with a gimbal head).

Last few shots attached....
