Kerry B,  N V U

Any chance you could share a few insights into the process of being involved doing photograpy out there.  Like assuming I found myself in Kenya what's the best way of getting the best overall situation for a "reasonable" dollar?

Jack, I have always gone with an organised safari specialist, however when I was in Mombasa a little while ago I did organise a safari staying at Voi in Tsavo East. Did involve a bit of a drive but cheap to arrange, there are so many comapnys touting for business. If you want to get the best photo opportunities then you need to organise your trip staying at reputable lodges. I stay at Kicheche Mara Camp in Mara North Conservancy, guides are brilliant and the camp superb. They specialise in photo safaris and will get you the best photo opportunities.

Who said the 7d was now a poor performer. Still rate this camera highly when you are able to shoot with low ISO.

7D is definitely not a poor performer ... I think with the new gen cameras people unfairly tend to compare a 4 year old camera's performance, but 7D is still capable of taking AWESOME images.

I've noticed in my pictures as well, that the young Osprey have different colour eyes than the parents... does anyone know why?

Maybe "hanky panky".  ;)

Nice GH owl shot Gary samples.  Lots of other nice shots too.  Thanks everyone.
