Nice Pee-Wee, Moobark!  We don't get the Easterns here but our similar ones don't like to pose for long(not quite as bad as warblers though)

Thanks ERHP. I found a gem in the wood-pewee sequence that may interest you. (7D, ISO320, 1/400s, F/6.3, 700mm)

serendipidy: that escaping moorhen was comical!

To Jack, click & rpt: Thanks for your encouragement. I tend to tunnel vision the bird so my backgrounds are usually poor. Here's what I think is a Bell's Vireo. Feel free to suggest otherwise! Edit: I've just been told it's a Blue-headed Vireo  :-X (7D, ISO1000, 1/400s, F/6.3, 700mm)

Egret having a feed of snake - Botswana
My! That's a big worm! ;)

Excellent timing. The whole thing must have happened in less than 30 seconds.

Marbled Godwit - Martha's Vineyard Oct 13
60D and 100-400 handheld in high wind.
f/6.3 ISO200 1/1600

We see very few of these, quite a treat for local birders. This one seems to be in no hurry to move south.

Here's a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk in flight.

5Diii, 400DO.
Shots like that make it all worthwhile!

Same bird, different background. Same shooting data.
Cool! 

Nice shots of Harry and I had to laugh at the running 'water chicken', serendipidy.

Need to spend more time here but if I'm not at work, I'm generally out trying to find something interesting to shoot.  Some really great shots being posted by everyone.

One of the spots I visit a lot has a Black Phoebe that does not seem to mind being photographed.  Now if I could just get more subjects to sit calmly for their 'portraits'.  EXIF



Canon 1D X / 5D MK III and some lenses
