Cormorants are not just black, but round here their bodies have a muted iridescance of reds and greens and I have been trying to not only capture them in flight but also show off these colours. These are the best so far...

7D2, 400DOii+1.4ii. Cropped by about 30%

Very nice pictures. Well done, Mike.

Wow! Now that's a great catch!  ;)

So did the fish fall in the water and live to tell the tale? Or did it fall on land?

My very first photos of owls in flight, taken yesterday. These short-eared owls were more than a 100 metres away, flying fast and low against a background. What is remarkable is not the quality but the ability of the 5D IV and a 400mm DO II + 2xTC to pick up and track these tiny dots at the centre. I set speed to 1/1600 s, aperture f/8 and auto iso in manual. The images are very small, occupying only a couple of hundred pixels by a couple of hundred out of the 30 megapixels. Remarkably, one of them is from the very left edge, showing how good the prime with TC is at the extreme. The only processing is DxO prime followed by USM at 0.9 px and 100%.
Nice series Alan. Good results in a difficult environment.

Ive been really happy with the autofocus capabilities of the 1DX. Tracking an eagle through some tall trees.
