splish splash, I was taking a bath ...
The first shot is excellent.
5D3 + 70-200 II - the first time I took to birds with this lens. Bah ... I think I'm in trouble now. The IQ of the 100-400 almost suddenly feels like crap. Need to save up for a new 300mm f/2.8 II.

I dream of the 600mm and then wake up
Young Cooper's Hawk. Martha's Vineyard.60D 100-400 @ 400mm, f6.3, ISO 250, 1250thThis bird posed for a few minutes, sometimes you just get lucky. Made my day.
These are zoo photos, taken though wire (I finally found out how to make the 135 bokeh ugly), of a Stellar Sea Eagle taking a bath. I watch these two at Denver zoo quite a bit, but hadn't seen them bathing before.
Maximilian I think the middle shot is almost as ugly as mine! Maybe there is a place for a thread of ugly birds after all- just joking!
Another cute ugly. This was down in a very secluded private area - she thought! Some fill flash sure could have helped.
White faced Heron. I noticed him yesterday, on my neighbors dam. Unfortunately, I didn't have the camera setup and ready. Today, we did 5D3 with 300mm f4 + 1.4x TC
