Beautiful. Great lighting and composition.
It's awesome object, the color, contrast, clear...
Lovely images - would like to see a caption of what was been photographed and where taken to add to the visual story.
They certainly are extraordinary. I'd like to know what each was taken with and the settings were. I have a D7000 that would never take a photo like that and I wonder if I spend $4,000 on a d810 it would either?
Not sure on the rest. However #2 is a "Sacred Kingfisher" taken with a Sony NEX-7 and a manual focus Canon FD 500 F4.5L. The NEX-7 was picked to suit the lenses, so the body was picked carefully. The D7000 with the new Tamron 150-600 does come to mind in your situation. Personally I like cropped sensors for the distances used here.
All the best.
I believe even an entry level DSLR like the d7000 can take pics like these. I have a canon 1200d which is maybe equivalent to your camera, or even a little worse. I won't say I've taken super pro-looking wildlife shots with it, but if you get very nice lenses then you can get great image quality out of basic dslr cameras.
Here are a couple of wildlife shots I've taken. Not as good as the ones in this article but you can maybe see that it's possible, if the person using the camera had more practice and the right conditions.
The D7000 is entirely capable of making any of these images, as are most other interchangeable lens cameras. You're looking at tiny screen images, much reduced, no doubt, from the camera original files. A V1 would be more than adequate.Can't speak for your D7000, though, or mine! Great work.
Most cameras are capable, that's not an issue. A lot of it comes down to the lenses and who is pushing the button.
Now, the first thing is: go to the places, see the images, have the light, shoot it. Some of the images here -in this size- can be shot by a superzoom. The last image -lone elk at the river- for example. You need to be there, know the places and the animals, possibly get permission, be at the place at the right time.If I look to the second image -kingfisher out of water- probably shot with 1/2000 or faster, this is impossible if you dont have the light. Here birds avoid the sun, they are only in the sun if there is no other possibility, as in new zealand ;-) The best camera and lens cannot do this image here at 1/2000 because sun is rare and if there is sun, there are no birds ;-).
Wow. Inspiring body of work.
Keep the showcase coming DP, nice selection.
Some lovely shots here.
Some really great photos. I like number 3 and 4 the best.

Good job picking powerful and "wild" and inspiring shots.
Stunning captures and congratulations to all!
Some very impressive work.
A Nikon 1 up there with the big boys. Great job number 7.
The title of the captions seems to be a leftover from the previous installment: "Readers' showcase: Landscape photography"
Kind of cool #7, the Common Waxbill in Hawaii, was shot with the Nikon V3 and 70-300cx lens. Thanks DPR.
Thank you DPR for the photographs looking like photographs worth to look at..
I find your expression well intentioned and quite disturbing.
