Ibis, shot in Australian.  Quite a common bird there.

Nice shot.  You can't complain about the cold in Oz at New Year unlike the Canadians.

I have been extremely lucky this year to have found 7 different snowy owls all within 40 min of my house .
they have been very co-operative as models and the light has been fantastic on the last few outings.
all shot with a1D markIV and 400 f5.6L
...

Those are some fantastic pictures of a snowy owl in flight Stuart!
Keeping the bird in focus while it seems to be turning to follow an erratically moving prey... I bow for thee my lord ;)

Thank you, AlanF!

We love to complain, what's better than a bit of gripe  8)  ;D ?!
We're in Ayers Rock at nearly 40, then the next night of 18 in Adelaide.  Just like mood swing.

I walked the dogs just now at -16 C.  Add a bit of wind.  Not fun. Fully bundled, a fall won't hurt too much because of the layers,  ::).

A great New Year to you.  May your shots are all keepers!

And forget to add - absolutely no comparison with the shot of Sedwards...
On top of my very low skills for BIF I'm using Markins Q20 ball head instead of gimbal and it doesn't help much in this task.

Hi Folks.
Lots of great shots from all the usual suspects. 👍
A few of a Kingfisher, not superb shots, not even good shots by forum standards, but my first shots of a Kingfisher and I’m chuffed to nuts with them!
The outing didn’t start well as I discovered I forgot my Black Rapid Strap when I parked the car, then after walking best part of a mile to the Hide carrying a 100-400 with gripped body by my fingertips I found I had left my 1.4x converter in the car, hence the tiny images of the bird!

This was one of about 8 to 10 fish I saw him catch in the 2 hours I was there!

Does this still count as flight despite looking more like a controlled crash in to a branch, not the most graceful looking landing but he did get his fish!

Valve bounce,
Quite a reward.  Nice ones.

Speaking of braving the cold , daily average here has been right around -25 for the last 6 days. It really has the Bluejays hitting the feeders more than usual. This is from a back yard setup at my friends house. I couldnt believe that I got this in focus when I saw it on the computer.

Outstanding depth of field - makes the pict pop.
