Don, it's apparent that there is something but I wouldn't have guessed a fence.  Very nice.

Goes to show it's still better to try the shot anyway.

Agreed, the fence is hardly noticeable at all.

First Great Blue Heron seen this year.... the shot was through a chain link fence and focused so as to make the links of the fence almost invisible. If you look closely at the picture you can make them out... they are the slightly brighter diagonal diamond pattern.

Pretty good result considering the chain fence in the way!

After seeing this, I guess I won't worry as much anymore about a little dust on the front element.  ;D

I had another go at the Great Crested Grebe today and got some shots of its mating dance. Quite a performer (I posted a few others on the 1DX thread, http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=8079.2595

I shot them at the west side of a lake called Østensjøvannet, in Oslo, Norway. They have two couples there this year. To me this bird, with its mating dance, is a clear 3-star Michelin equivalent.

This guy was about 100 feet or so from the Sandhill Crane.  Waited on him for 2-3 hours to fly around.  Nope...

Love the recent shots!  And spring is on its way - more geese flying over.

Hi Cog.
Love the first one, action all the way, the detail of the feathers on the top of the wing sucked in to the vortex, great. Is this the sister photo to the landing in the BIF section?

Hi Sedwards.
Hoooonnnnk, says it all nice shot!

Cheers Graham.

Thanks! Yep, it's the same series. This one is cropped more than the BIF one as this one originally had only a tale of the male duck. :)
