Thank you, Jim, but it is quite simple. I am shooting them ducks accross a pond. On the opposite bank there are some oaks trees which have turned red, in fact much of their leaves are gone by now. The "trick" is to wait until something swims into the water reflection area and then shoot. Unfortunately, the pond is quite wide at that point, therefore even with 800mm one has to do a fair bit of crop enlargement.

Pure liquid metal and a pijun...pijun would burst into flames, probably wouldn't be smiling...I think your explanation seems more apt though Peter This last shot is impressive to say the least, stunning actually, put a smile on me mug!

A few of your 1D2N shots had the feel/texture...well waited for, seen and captured

Thank you, Jerry....while I was waiting for someting to stumble into the fall background reflection, I was also taking potshots at pijuns, if they happened to fly head on. That is quite a sport with 800mm lens, if one happens to be a masochist.

Also, a loonatic pijun swam/dove by, alas, it was too far and it dove under the nice water reflection....boy oh boy, that bird moves under water real good.

Handheld 1DX + 400 f/2.8 IS MkII + 2xTC MkIII.

Nice images Peter!
I'm a bit of a flying nut and on viewing your 1st pijun, wings fully extended, that thick part of wing just off body, reminds me of the F14 TomCat. The F14 has that bump/thick bit of wing due to it's landing gear and it's gearing/hydraulics that move the wing between Full Extension to Delta positioning.

As for your watery pijun, must have been a speed swimmer, it looks quite swift as the water wake in front of it is quite rippled!

Jerry, that loonatic tricked me a few times already, when I tried to use an approach method I have developed for other shy divers, which is as follows: when they take a dive, I rush to the water's edge, as close as possible to the anticipated point of the exit back onto surface. However, the loonatic dives 2-3 times the anticipated horizontal distance, so I just couldn't catch up to him. Once he also made a u-turn under water I couldn't see, thus he and I ended up on the opposite sides of the pond, 100 ft apart.

Jerry : The female of the species is far more tolerant to human approach that their male counterparts I think


I thought it must be my affinity for the female sex of any species (I live with a wife, three daughters, and two - female - dogs), something I've developed over the last several decades in order to preserve my sanity and peace of mind ...

Meanwhile, in Photography Land....
I visited my favorite gingko tree today; leaves are falling fast...
The first two with 24-105L, the last with 300 f/2.8L IS (Mk. 1)...

(edit) I've tried with Lightroom 4 and Photoshop, but re-sizing the last one to web size always produces those circular artifacts...sorry about that, but my PP skills aren't up to it yet...

And this concludes the BIF testing of 400 II + 2xTC combo.
Now, I can go back to using the most suitable lens for the task on hand.
(1DX + 400 II + 2xTC III)

Super Peter,

YOU passed the test with flying colors. Hope you weren't implying that the 400 combo wasn't suitable.

Db, as a matter of general principle of BIF shooting, I prefer to trade some FL for a gain in lens (combo) agility.

Well done high key bird shots.

These are from the Nellis AFB (Las Vegas, NV) airshow. It was the Thunderbirds last airshow of the season. This was my first planes in flight for my new (Canon refurbished) 100-400L on my 5D mk II. I was pretty happy with the lens; reasonable size/weight, liked the push-pull zoom, and fast auto focus.

Close pass - panning one jet as other came into the frame - handheld

By the end of the show, the sun was getting pretty low, so some nice color






I liked this stack - a bit different look. Pretty heavy crop - handheld.

Here's a little pijun and a big pijun in autumn environments.
Handheld 1DX + 600 II + 1.4xTC III.

(Please note, these are not backyard feeder birds, nor birds baited otherwise. )
