    One more, she is hopping, in mid-air, and just getting ready to fly.

    Post your best bird shots!

    That's a great capture. I like it when the picture captures the motion of an animal.

    One could also joke:
    The bird clearly has vision problems, missed the perch, but doesn't know and thus forgets to fall down ...

    My first stab at BIF. Love this 400mm f5.6.

    Great shots, Mark! I always wondered if it would have been better if I would have gone with the 400mm rather than the 100-400mm. Great shots like this has more to do with the skills of the photographer IMO and you did very well here!!

    Agreed...I like the first one best. The 400/5.6 lens is well known to be a great BIF lens....it's sharp, focuses fast and light enough to handle easily. Well done!

    Thanks, folks. I'm pretty happy with the lens. I just wish we could have more than one day of sunshine so I could use it more often. This constant gray overcast is depressing. So far March has been the worst month of the winter.

    The buffer on the 6D can be frustrating for BIF shots, but it certainly does take decent images. These are nearly 100% crops.

    I was out at the local reservoir today and saw this guy coming over the treetops. I was psyched when I looked through the lens and saw it was a bald eagle. First one I've ever seen in the wild.







    Then a youngster joined in.
