 Loons at Cherry Grove. 

Well, not really.  That's a Neotropic Cormorant, I think.  Here's one that I photographed recently.

Canon 5d mkii, 200mm f2.8 ii

Shot at 1/650th of a second, this shot had a lot more motion blur on the bird then I wanted, though it is only really visible on the full res version

Thanks Alan and Steven,  the photo was definitely mislabeled.  Sometimes batch processing isn't the best way to label.

Shot during sunset on a Canon 5d mkii and 200mm f/2.8 ii in front of my house.  Spent 20 minutes creeping up to this guy, and when I finally got close enough he started flying away.  Was impressed that I was able to get an in focus shot in harsh lighting with the 5d.

Currently trying to learn to expose images properly. And i needs to be said i often get strange looks while i am photographing birds. But on this occasion i was fortunate that there was someone walking a cat in the park that took the attention off me...

Nice image, dpc. Unusual pose on the Mallard; wonderful range of colors on the hen and the water.

Thanks. I was walking along the bank of the lagoon and she was trying to stay away but obviously didn't want to fly off, so she just skittered for thirty metres or so and then settled.
