Yup! Lovely capture. The tail is interesting. I guess it dives a lot...

I browse the forum at work but they generally frown upon 'participating' while there so I often go days without posting. 

@Bobstew:  That is one cool looking bird.
@serendipidy:  Changing from the 7D to 5D III was huge, though it was hard for me initially to get over the 'apparent' crop loss.  Cool shots of your friend(BCNH) and the Brazilian Cardinal, especially the 'stepping off' one.
@AlanF:  Sweet closeup!  The Belted Kingfishers here are fairly wary of humans, though I did get a couple of shots yesterday.  Just not 20' away :( .  Jrista pretty much spelled it out.
@hovland:  One I would like to see in person. 

Here's one of the local Forster's Terns grabbing some dinner last night.  EXIF is in the image.

Thanks, click and ERHP.

Bobstew...nice photo of a beautiful bird.

ERHP...well timed shot. What are those water drops rising from the surface? Was it raining?

serendipidy, those were from the tern's initial dive impact a second before the shot.  Shooting silent mode on the 5D III so my FPS during action sequences is less than optimal.

Our season is shifting to fall and what's out there to shoot is changing.  Instead of larvae the attraction is more towards berries.

Great horned owl taken in a park in Qu├ębec city
Nice Owl!

While waiting for some deer to make their way into range, a gang of wild turkeys wandered around the area I had decided to use as a vantage.  While turkeys are generally unexciting(but tasty), this one Tom caught my eye when he jumped on top of a rock as a lookout while the hens filed through the area.


I think that's a female.... The males are a lot more massive... I work beside a military firing range and because nobody is allowed there, plus shooting anything but a target is a career ending move, there is a lot of wildlife.... Hundreds of deer and wild turkeys.... I get to chase them away almost every time i go out... The males look like this, notice the red of the throat and the shin flap over the nose...

Jrista, Jack and serendipity
That image was not entered into a competition but merely presented to a website that takes 800x600 reduced size images, on which I have many. Two weeks ago I got within 6 metres of a kingfisher and got several shots where you can see every feather.  Here is a close up of a head, cropped from the full image.

WOW!

You might have guessed by now that I like kingfishers. This one taken on 7D, 300mm f/2.8 II +2xTC III at f/5.6, 400 iso, 1/400. 100% crop. It's at the limit of resolution, the bird is only 356 pixels high and the fish 72.
