Brilliant work! I have a hard tim egetting close to these guys, so getting such a good inflight shot is amazing to me. Usually I only see them flying away from me! I love the eye contact.
Beautiful work! I really love both the sharpness and the background blur that your lens provides. I also like the almost monochromatic colouring: it anchors the bird in its environment really well.
Are you using the 2x converter on your 400? If so, how do you find image quality for larger prints?
Neautiful inflight shot. I love the background!
Wonderful POV: always good to see someone willing to get on the ground for that perfect shot... and those eyes at this POV make it a great one. The light is, of course, great too.
Incredible colour and the composition is just stunning! But, ummm, how were you within 200mm range safely? Surely you were almost on top of this bear?
Great moment - well captured. Getting the eye in focus with such a fast moving subject is impressive.
I really love the skim lighting that the early backlight provides - it is magical. DOF also contributes to making this a a great image.
Amazing eyes! They just jump right out of the photo.
Fantastic work capturing this monent! I'm pleasantly surprised that 1/500th was enough to freeze the wings, but who can argue with success?
It's a "two for one sale" on waxwings! Great job showing them together and getting eye contact from both!
