ERHP - I love the Shoveler shot.  Great action, very nice detail.

Here's Black Skimmer in action taken a few weeks ago at St Marks NWR in FL.  I have been "jonesing" for this shot for a long time.  The skimming action was pretty far away and I didn't get many pixels on the bird with my lens (300 mm f/4 L with 1.4X TC III) so this has been cropped and processed a good bit.  I probably could have used faster shutter speed but I think smooth panning was also part of my problem.  BIF takes a lot of practice!

7D, 1/1250, f/8, ISO 400.

This is a Herring Gull that just dove underwater to steal a tidbit from a Common Loon. ( still underwater ).  I am not sure what the tidbit actually is.

100- 400mm

Nice shot. I think the tidbit is a crab.

A couple of images from our Audubon "Great Backyard Bird Count".
50D, 1D X, and just enough glass to get the job done.
