A sunbird with my trusty 100-400 which is way much sharper on my 5D3 than my 6D and 600D.

Very nice, the autofocus did a great job of ignoring the leaves just in front of the bird.

PS - Location ?

Thanks, the location is India ... foothills of the Himalayas.

The 5D3 AF is indeed a thing to rave about. So very often I take it for granted but when shooting with a different camera, I realise just how good it is.  :)

Andy_Hodapp,

It must be exciting to have the opportunity.  I rarely see an eagle and then only golden.  Bet you were wishing you had a longer lens or could get closer!

Just pulled up the thread and wow - incredible shots by everyone!  We really have a great bunch of bird photographers on CR and each time I click on this thread I'm amazed by what I see.  I went to my usual haunt this weekend and once again spied some black-crowned night herons - still not as tame as 'Harry', but these two let me approach a bit closer:

Very nice mack

Very lucky with this little guy.  He did not mind me being this close to him to take his photo.

Here is a favorite of mine.  It is a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk, photographed with a Canon 7D, a Sigma 50-500mm OS lens, a Sigma 2x teleconverter, and a Sigma 1.4x teleconverter.  (Yeah.  I know.  I probably shouldn't be stacking teleconverters.)  This photo is as I took it, without any processing.

Jack

Right now in the process of choosing a longer lens.  Tamron 150-600mm?  I did try and get closer but he flew away, but not before I got a shot of him flying!!!!
