I had the 5DSR and 100-400mm II with me yesterday driving back from Oxford in case I saw anything, and was fortunate to see a couple of red kites circling. The conditions were terrible with heavy cloud, and the birds looked black. Over exposing by 1.67 ev plus pushing more in post and some further processing pepped them up a bit. Pity I didn't have 800mm with me as they weren't that close.

V nice, Alan.  Aren't we constantly kicking ourselves.  Seems whatever we pack along the situation demands something else.

Thanks Jack (as also click and Ethan). I am usually happy with what I take with me as my Canon gear is so good! 800mm would have been better but the 400mm was good enough for fun. I reckon if the image of the bird spans 1000-1500 px it's good enough for my annual book, and 2000 to 3000 means I see the fleas on the feathers.

Even with just the 100-400 they are very nice and very sharp Alan. And as always the best camera/lens combination is the one we have with us. 5DsR with the 100-400 II is such a small and versatile combo anyway.

@Alan - Really nice, Alan -- the sharpness is great on those.  The 100-400 II remains my favorite zoom lens of all time.

@canon1dxman - spectacular photograph.  I wish we got snake eagles out here.

Very nice series Alan!
They might not have filled your complete sensor image but there is a lot of detail in them anyway (well, both 100-400 II and 5DSR are fabulous, so we expect that don't we ;))
Beautiful colours in these kites - you did well in exposing the way you did!
