Here's a few more from this morning:







 
Very nice!
The 300 f/2.8 MKII + ext 2.x is producing very good quality.
What kind of post processing did you do?

I use a dual camera strap to walk trails and dikes with my 300ii and extenders and handhold most bif pics so the lighter weight and size works perfect for what I do but would still like to get the 600 f4ii but that's got to wait for awhile for added reach.

What a great photo!

Thanks and my PP tool of choice is DxO.  I'm able to process about 90% of my work using it alone, but will use PhotoShop CC if I need to do additional work like compositing, portrait retouching, and such.  With my wildlife and landscape photos, I don't do any cloning or retouching, so DxO does it all for me :).

So you only apply the lens profile module (300 + ext 2.x) in DxO for those photos? Nothing else?

Personally, I often apply a variety of corrections in DxO – exposure, WB, vibrance, level and crop, etc.  However, with the exception of dust removal all of DxO's tools are global.  For local edits, I use CS6.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Same here, and there's no profile for the 300 f/2.8 IS II with or without extenders - hopefully someday, but the (auto-)corrections would be fairly minor - a bit of vignetting, a tiny bit of CA with the extenders.  The automatic sharpening with the lens profiles in DxO is really nice, however, and that would save me a lot of time tweaking the unsharp mask settings.
