Another carnivore in the wild, an African wild dog crossing water in the Okavango Delta, Botswana. Image with a Canon 1DX Mark 2 (beta) and EF 500L f4 IS ii. S/s 1/1250sec at f4, iso 200. 
Grant, if I may ask a silly question. What did ISO 200 get you that ISO 100 wouldn't, especially on a 1Dx mkII?
Fantastic images by the way!

::)  Black Bear Cub caught in the wild!

Technically, Bears are omnivores but what they heck!   ;D

Nice capture; cute expression.  Do you use that 1.4x with your 100-400 very much?

Hi C-FMST.
My guess as to what ISO 200 got that ISO 100 wouldn't is 1/1250th sec shutter instead of 1/640th sec which may have left motion blur on a moving African Wild Dog. F4 lens was at f4 so no scope to open that up so ISO it is!  :)

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Catherine and thank you!  I don't use the 1.4iii very often at all really.  I'm not sure why but I've recently started using it and will likely begin using it a bit more.   I'm also considering selling the 100-400 ii for the 400 DO II.  Not sure yet but possibly. 

The bear cub image was taken without the 1.4 iii

Cheers!  ;D

Here you go . . .

Alaska Brown Bear at Brooks River Falls - about 2-1/2 hours of patience until I got the right fish at the right angle to the right bear!

Patenting has paid off in the end!! Awesome picture

I am revisiting this thread and two photos on page three from two different photographers both have the same odd appearance. The grizzly bear by Mikehit and the wild dog by Eldar both look as though the animal was cut and pasted onto the backdrop. I doubt this is the case, what I suspect happened is they used software to select the animal only and enhance it (contrast, saturation, etc) to make it stand out. Possibly also added blur to background (at least on grizzly bear). Please do not take this as a personal attack, but just my opinion they went too far and it looks fake.

Does anyone else see this effect or is it just me?

Brown bear, Denali National Park. Last September my cousin and brother and I got one of the lottery car passes so we self-drove the entire road.

Terrible backlight but that's the wild........

Came upon a Bask of African Crocodiles in Lake Chamo in Ethiopia.  "My what big teeth you have."

First photo - 5Diii, 100-400 mkii, 1/5000, f/5.6, iso 1000

Second - 5Diii, 100-400 mkii, 1/4000, f/5.6, iso 1000 ..... The bird got a LOT closer than I did!

Kruger National Park, 7D with 100-400.

No need to blow big bucks and private safaris when you can self-drive and get this close to lion cubs. Save the cash for a new lens.

Kruger Park. My wife took these with an old 350D and 70-200L.

I think she's ready for an upgrade to 800D and the only reason I've waited this long is because she insists on using the green square or action mode!
