I was photographing the red arrows today


(BTW is you want to see this image at its best look on flickr, for some reason CR makes it look soft)

If you debate with a fool onlookers can find it VERY difficult to tell the difference.

I had a very tame osprey this morning - I was able to get within about 30 feet in my mobile blind - aka car :):


Very nice!

Another shot with the same combo.  This time used with a 430EXII and better beamer.
1/200, F/16, ISO 640
1DIV, 5DIII, 7D and too many lenses to list.
Too much time, too little gear...scratch that, reverse it.

These birds really are this bright of a yellow, I thought I had my saturation slider turned up to 10000

nineyards - great shot - those little guys seems to hold still, well never.  dslrdummy - that's definitely a great use for a long lens and get's much closer than a normal watersports shot.

Here's a few more from this morning:







Wow! Two amazing shots! The golden light in the feathers the flying egret/heron is magical, and that (snap?)shot of the racoon is fantastic and really shows the bold charme and curiosity of these cute critters!

New member, first post.  I love the 300 II with the 1.4 or 2x extenders.  Here are a couple of eagles taken with the 2x iii.





Regards, Jim

What a kickstart! Great photos Jim!!!

MJ, thanks for the nice comments and I hadn't seen a lot of those other photos!  Wow, it certainly shows what these combos can do!  Here a few new shots:

420mm - Anhinga:


420mm - Juvenile American Alligator - off the cuff shot - not great, but I still like it:


600mm - pair of Bald Eagles:
