Re: ***Weekly Wildlife Thread: Jul 20th - 26th***

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.

Fixed links

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.

Re: Fixed links

Thanks, Luis!

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.

Excellent!  The reflections of the painted turtle were really cool!

All of these are with my A77ii and Sigma 150-500mm F5-6.3

These three appeared to be having a town meeting.

Same bird as the following image, he just shook himself out a little bit. This one is at 150mm.

Thank you Muk!

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.

Peregrine Falcon - In Flight
1

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.

Re: Wetlands more than just birds.

Great shots! I'm especially a fan of the raccoon shot. It's hard to find opportunities to shoot one in daylight.

Re: Peregrine Falcon - In Flight

Well done! Did you use the lock on focus mode?

A77 ii - Tamron 200-500 @ GatorLand

Don't know if Gatorland counts as wild but the birds are free to come/go.
