In another thread, there has been some discussion of the benefits of higher fps.  Here's an example of a moment that I might have missed with slower than the 8fps of my 7D.  Of course, I might have caught it with a single shot, too.  I figure my chances were better with the 8fps. :)

7D, 70-200/2.8, cropped a bit.

Good timing. Well done Sir!

Good timing. Well done Sir!

Here's another from a couple weeks later.  Same hawk, same gear.  This is a crop of the right side of a landscape view (almost the entire height).

Both of these cases are misses, where she didn't catch the mouse in midair.  Normally she does.

5DIII + 300mm f/2.8 II + 2xTC III @f/5.6 1/320 iso 1250, hand held. It's difficult to get detailed images of kingfisher's plumage, but the 2xTC III performed well.

300mm 2.8 with 2xiii

Egret decided last second he didn't want his picture taken. ::)

I'm not sure but I think these are wood ducks?

My heron friend has been missing for several weeks, but returned yesterday and wanted me to help him fish. He looked hungry and I tried for 30 minutes, but he only caught 3 small minnow sized appetizers :(
