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.

Really nice...I like them all! Keep posting :)

More crazy eyes.
A Double crested Cormorant stops fishing to check me out. The bird was perfectly lit in warm afternoon light. They have such bizarre eyes, I did a max crop to see the inner structure. Very odd !

60D and 100- 400mm  The crop was shot at 1000th at f5.5 and ISO 1000
(the eye crop shows some great inner detail when viewed at full size.)

Serendipidy, what a beautiful tree and bird.  Very nice shots.  If you're like me you may need to be told to watch you don't get carried away on the ladder!  :)
