Very nice Serindipidy, you do very well with a reach of 640mm, probably better than me at 600, except relative to the ISO difference with the 7D.  That's why I've really been wondering about a 7D2.

jthomson, looks like the birds mixed up the fishes!  :)  Very nice.  steven kessel great too!

Boy, there's no end of great bird shots on this forum that inspire (or in weaker moments make me feel like I'll never get there). :(

mjbehnke, I used to think some birds were just too refined and polite to display what your hummer does - until I observed my chickadee chasing away his friend, from "his" bathing pool!  Of course, I've also seen mean behaviour from the likes of the nuthatches virtually all the time.

Even when the shots aren't materializing the antics are fun to observe!

Thanks, Jack and Click. I also am waiting to see what the 7D2 will be like ( but not the new price). And a new 100-400L II might also be a good improvement.

My heron friend waits for me every afternoon to go fishing with him. He is still afraid to get closer than about 8 feet. When I run out of bread, he flies over and lands on the concrete bridge wall about 8 feet from me and just stares at me, until I leave. Today he caught about 5 or 6 fish (2 were fairly good sized). One tiny fish jumped out of his beak and landed in the water and got away. Another bigger one flipped out of his beak, but wasn't close enough to the water and got recaptured rather quickly.

Seridipidy, I envy the relationship.  All I have are these dumb ducks that apparantly are eating the weed on the pond.  Round and round back and forth shaking their beaks rapidly in the water not caring about me at all, and this isn't a park.  The other ducks high tail it.

Guess soon the Heron will be eating from your hand!

Nice photo. At least the weeds are free...I have to keep buying loaves of bread :P

I thought about trying to entice him to eat from my hand (I'd have to hold a fish, since herons won't eat bread). But the pointy beak, sharp claws and those "Terminator" red eyes made me abandon the idea ;D
