A few more from the past several days. 5D3, 100-400L @400mm.

These two moorhens are a breeding pair and have a nest up the canal around the bend and out of sight. Whenever I start fishing with Harry the Heron, several minutes later, one of the moorhens comes swimming towards us as fast as his little legs can go. I don't know how they know I'm here. So I throw him a chunk of bread, and he runs along the bank (very funny gait ;D) towards the nest, and then, halfway there, he jumps in the water and literally runs on the water (flapping his wings to keep just his body in the air). After 5 minutes, he or both of them return for seconds and thirds in the same manner. It is late afternoon and the sun is low behind the mountains, so the light is not optimal, but I tried to capture this ritual.

Moorhen running on the water to his nest with chunk of my bread.
You can see the splashes from his feet and also, around his path, you can see other water disturbances from where the fish startle with his commotion. ;D

were you also the one holding the bird? if so, that must have been difficult to shoot left-handed   :P

Nice pictures! I can now see a whole new series starting up. Harry is going to be jealous!

I was outside taking a picture of the crescent moon and Venus and a flock of Canada Geese flew through the picture....

Ha! Ha! Ha!

That is what one does when there is nothing to shoot - or should I say so much to shoot.  :)

Two very different birds both photographed early this AM and both on the same tree at the same time.  The eagle watched with curiosity as the magpie hopped from branch to branch.  Shot in available light, on monopod, 1DX and 600II.
