Birds - Most Popular All-Time
Always love this time of year when our feathered friends from up north comes to visit here in Florida. This Male Northern Pintail was doing some preening for me showing of his beautiful plumage.  This was my first day out with the new 7D mk2 and i was very happy with it's performance. Canon 7D mkII w 500mm + 1.4x   1/600 f9 iso 800 www.wklein.smugmug.com
Sentinel    While one mate is off gathering sticks or fishing ... the other guards the nest from other osprey (claim jumpers are a problem during nest building).

We were out driving yesterday and spotted this owl in a tree.  Not sure what kind yet.      Where is my bird book?  ;-)    I believe this is a barred owl.    Three other shots in gallery.
Sometimes you shoot a silhouette and really really wish it wasn't. I haven't seen such a good pose in a long time.
Femle Osprey On Watch    She led me over here and posed for pics, just so long as I stopped bothering her kids! Crop only, otherwise straight out of the camera.
Even when they're resting, they appear to be on the alert!    Best viewed XLarge.    One thing I always seem to lack is enough lens.  So, if you'd like to contribute to Mike's "500mm f/4 fund", please let me know!  ;-)    Have a blessed day!
