***Weekly Wildlife Thread: Jul 20th - 26th***
It's time to post your wildlife images, and view & comment on everyone else's 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.
And please feel free to view and comment on the wildlife photos you see, to keep the thread friendly and active!
Does it have to be wild animals, or do other forms of life count, too? These are from the last few weekends, as this weekend was spent on a ladder with a paintbrush, and it doesn't take very good photos.

I fixed the Flickr links. You only need the part which contains the http://farm4.staticflickr.com/....jpg sequence.
Very nice images, in particular I liked the Bald Eagle.
Looks like EXIF doesn't come through. The wild growing native turks cap lily was taken in a roadside ditch with an a57 and 135STF. The eagle, a77 and 500mm AF Reflex. The loon, a57 and 500mm AF Reflex.
I have been mostly posting bird photos and thought I would change it up. These were taken at Green Cay NR.

You can see larger versions of my pictures at www.dennismullen.com.
All of these are with my A77ii and Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3
I was coming in here this evening to see if anyone posted the WW thread...I hoped someone would figure out I was absent and get one going!
I'm currently traveling up at Disney World and won't be back until Wednesday, so I may be late to posting to this thread - I was going to post it in case no one else had, but now I don't have to.
I'll be back on schedule to post it next week.
Taken with the Sony A77II. To say the least, I am quite impressed with the AF capability of this camera to keep a focus hold on a falcon and capture a significant amount of detail.
Larger images are available for viewing on my website.
Great shots! I'm especially a fan of the raccoon shot. It's hard to find opportunities to shoot one in daylight.
Well done! Did you use the lock on focus mode?
and more importantly what did you do with Justin?
this ugly chick is all the wildlife you are going to get from me till you bring Justin back.
Focus on what you have, not on what you don't.
A57 w/ Tamron 90mm macro. Taken a couple weeks ago.
So ugly it is coot.
I mean cute
