Fresh off the camera:
Very nice, care to share any details?
EF 100-400L IS USM
550EX with Better Beamer
1/1000 @ f6.3
A set of freshly charged batteries went bad on me right when I had the best position, so I missed some really good ones becuase the flash would not fire.
Damn good picture iGary, damn good. Bravo. Sadly my hard drive failed last week and I lost all my images so....
Oh no - that sucks.
Sorry to hear that.
Agreed. And sadly, I'd post pictures but I haven't the skill, "eye," or equipment.
Actually, Gary, could you give a little background info about that shot? The bird (eagle?) seems to be perched on metal as opposed to a branch or whatnot... And did you actually watch it swoop for the kill? How exciting!
:edit: I'm sad I missed a shot of a young buck (male deer) squatting to relieve himself.
It's an osprey AKA a "fish hawk."
They love to make nests on these markers on the water (street signs for boaters):
I was getting ready for the Wednesdy Night Sailboat Races and I just happened to see this guy up there.
I didn't see him actualy nab the thing, but have seen it before. It's quite spectacular. Lots of luck involved with this shot - never expected such good results. It's so hard to get these sharp when the boat is moving, they are moving, you're tryng to get as close as you can without making them fly off...
speaking of relieving himself
You can see the trail of p.. and the baby giraf just standing there
I love giraffes. Nice shot.
From a recent South Africa trip:
And some more...
And one of the more beautiful available containers from Macallan's Birds of Prey Series.
I'd usually rather be lucky than good, especially if pics like that are the result. I'm amazed that you even noticed him during a Regatta! Nice Shot, iGary. Really nice shot.
He's watching you
Indeed that was a great shot.
I didn't see the whole picture first...I called my 7 years old to come and see and as any 7 years old boy would do is ....WOOOOOOOW.
Then I move the mouse...oh my....He loved it.
Those are incredible shots. I like the way you used the sunlight to your advantage.
Cheetahs are beautiful...did you get to pet the kitties???
A happy Hippo
I love this one:
There are some fantastic shots in this thread, thanks for sharing them!
I can't hope to measure up but here's a couple of mine anyway.
Not exactly a wild animal (domesticated tiger ), but I like this shot:
