Weekly Wildlife Thread: July 7th - July 13th
It's time to post your wildlife images.
All wildlife not contained or restricted (NO pets or zoo animals please).
All systems are welcome. When not Sony, please indicate the equipment.
When posting your own images, please reply to this first post in the thread; otherwise, thread viewers will likely overlook your contribution.
At first I thought they were Fire Ants, but turned out they were something different. The last shot is a cropped 80mm to show how many there were, almost 50 yards of the trail looked like that.
I braved the heat of the middle of a sunny July day in South Florida to bring you these shots. But I couldn't resist when my new Sony 55-300mm lens showed up!
I hope you enjoy them, C&C welcome...
Sony A77 + Tamron 200-500

A77 + Tamron 70-200mm/2.8, handheld, a fast PP, no or minor crop. Anybody knows what kind of bird the chicks in # 1 and #2 are?
Hi guys, I haven't posted here since they revamped the web site and don't know if the exif data is automatically inserted or not. All were shot with a Canon 60D, 70-200mm f2.8 IS II with 2.0 TC.
I like your way of composition. If it is not a canadian goose I think it is a barnacle goose, lots of those flying around here in europe.

My first kingfisher pic. Shot in the La Sauge, Neuenburger See, Switzerland. I can recommend this nature centre for this kind of photos since the kingfishers kept coming to the little birding site quite regularly. Within seconds I got my first series of pics, a few minutes later, the second one,etc.. Lot's of photographers with large lenses had their fun.
Sony Canada lent me 70-400G II over the weekend. I will post my evaluation on separate thread but here are some shots:
A common resident of the arctic tundra, the Arctic Ground Squirrel goes underground once the snow comes.
Beautiful shots but the Bobcat capture is awesome. Thanks for sharing.
Great shots, ASS. Reminds me of my (old) 70-400. Looking forward to your evaluation.

American Oystercatcher Nice Paint job on him
Yellow headed Night Heron
Nice Shots there Gene , Dont usually comment on Seagulls but that one is Cool with his wings up like a Sail boat around here we call them Rats with Wings , Cant tell you how many times I got Crapped on by them while doing Charters and cleaning fish. Nice Ones .
A major storm had gone through the estuary where I normally shoot and it was a mess with trees blown all about, broken branches and weed swept ashore. So out with a shovel and sledge hammer to make use of some of the branches. Set a couple up as perches for the NZ Sacred Kingfisher. So concentrating on those this week. Plus I'm addicted to them
A few shots from the NEX-7 and Canon FD 500 F/4.5L, manual focus, hand held, cropped as per normal.
All the best folks and just a few recent shots this week.
Great work Bob and its working out well mate. I now have two reasons to visit here, you and Justin Nice.
I would love a shot of two at the Yellow headed Night Heron, we only have the White faced Heron and a Reef Heron here. In fact I must get out and get a few shots of the Reef Heron for a change.
All the best up your way Bob and again, nice work and shots mate, very nice to see.
