When gannets move in next door, property becomes hard to sell....

Awesome shots Guy. I especially like the second and last one. Good control of the light, nicely done.

Thanks Click. Just for info 5D3 and 300mm 2.8 IS centre-weighted metering plus a third of a stop.

Great shots! Particularly the first and third!

Snowy Egret preening in a treetop in Cherry Creek State Park, CO:



  • Canon EOS 7D
  • Canon EF 600mm f/4 L IS II + 1.4x TC
  • Hand-held

Love it! Looks so serene...almost other worldly.

Thanks! It was a great day, and its perch on that tree was excellent. Probably one of my top few best Egret shots so far.

Red Billed Ox Pecker.

Must be the most annoying little Crappers in the bird Kingdom, unless you have Ticks of Course.

1Dx 200-400f/4, Shot @ 533mm f/5.6 & 1/320th ISO200

That's a very cool shot  8) I like it  :) Nicely done Edward

Thanks Click, and while some were Pecking the Crap out of his Head, these were having a Party on his Back, I think Buffalos probably hate Ox Peckers.

1Dx 200-400f/4, Shot @ 490mm f/5.6 & 1/800th ISO200
Edward, you need to get your copyright size back up! It needs to do justice to the pictures you take...
Well then, just my opinion...

Thanks RPT, always a quandary, Make the Copy right large enough to show, or small enough not to detract from the Image, I do this for Fun so less of an issue I guess, but appreciate the sentiment, really.

Ran into about 10 different Eagle Owls on the trip, previous few trips none, go figure, even seen one with only one Eye.

I think this one has had too much whisky (Paul13walnut look my spellings have improved ;)   )
