Early attempts at bif photography with the canon 100-400mm on my 7d.
Was starting to get a bit dark for this setup to handle.

I like the 1st photo, beautiful light. Thank you for sharing

Cheers. I nearly cried when I saw the results. Having Parkinson's tremor I could take 10,000 or 100,000 shots of birds in flight and not one would be sharp. To have 2 (in fact I had 4 or 5) as sharp as these is unheard of for me.
So, cheers again.

Thank you all for keeping this thread going and posting some truly amazing and inspiring work.
A couple from my recent outings.
1DIV, 5DIII, 7D and too many lenses to list.
Too much time, too little gear...scratch that, reverse it.
