Another day fishing at the bay, but mostly taking pictures
These were taken with the 7D paired with the 400mm/5.6, except the last two taken with the MkIV and the 70-300L IS.
C&C welcome
Socrate






1 -“Here it comes that pesky Merganser”






2- “Get out of my area!”






3- “I’m out of here”






4- “Catch me if you can”

The first two are great but the last three are all about the light. Great work.

Oh Socrate, these are stunning. Love the first series, but the last three in that gorgeous light are my favorites

My mind is having a difficult time with the last one and that is not because I don't like it. I am thinking such extreme low light would really throw off the WB however the GBH is spot on perfect and even has a nice range of light values? My mind is thinking fill flash but I see no signs of that?? At first thought the reflections were from a setting sun, geeeesh this shot is just a marvel for the stats provided Socrate

#7 Really a nice rendition of the the light coloration and the shadows going cool in color. Certainly this image makes a nice time stamp as to when you took it

#6 whether the back wing is OOF from DOF or from movement it works well in isolating and pushing attention to the eye. There is much I like about this image

#5 Lovely

#4 knowing how fast these speedsters get going this is one great shot showing the low level ballistic speeds they travel, neat!

#3 fancy foot work and wound up wings add to the rapid departure you captured!

#2 Quite a face off and warning!

#1 Sooooo much wonderful texture in those pristine whites, simply wonderful on those subtle shadow dimples that add character in the wings. Incredible dimension to this image, great one my friend

An extra nice set Socrate. 1, 3, and 5 stand out, but 6 is my pick. I, too, marvel at the last shot given the shooting conditions ~ Ron

Lovely set Socrate. #5 & 6 for me, with a nod to 6 for best in show. Great pose and surroundings.

Those loons are totally cool! And the looney one displaying in front of the merganser is a great fun shot. Following Karl is like performing after an animal or kid act so I'll keep it brief.

Lovely gallery of very fine images Socrate, techs are excellent as always.
#4 is captured perfectly with excellent detail and wing position. Nit: I'd be tempted to give it a bit of CW rotation.
Love the beautiful light on the two Snowy images... beautiful.
The GBH is my favorite because of the gorgeous colors in the water and elegant pose... impressive IQ under those shooting conditions and settings.
Excellent work, very enjoyable set Socrate.
