SECOND set of Images - (PICS)
4

.
Another batch of images taken on the weekend with the M6 + EF 100-400mmL II lens combo. My parents have a house across the road from the ocean but I'm only there a few times a month when visiting.  The only image that required a serious amount of Noise Reduction was the first one of the Kookaburra (bird).  I ran a medium NR pass with Topaz Denoise on that shot (a Photoshop pluggin filter).  I had a Circular Polarizing filter on the lens and the bird was in heavy shadow.  A higher ISO setting (ISO 2000) combined with the APS-C sensor and lifting shadows resulted in a bit of noise that needed work.  This bird visits every morning and hunts for small snakes and lizards in our backyard.  Sometimes he brings his girlfriend. He doesn't leave any mess on the railings but he once left a dead (but deadly) baby Brown Snake behind.

Some of these shots contain interesting color and detail though they might not be perfect examples.  I figured they demonstrate a little of what to expect from the lens combo with one of the EOSM cameras.  The hardest thing was picking through all the thousands of images (literally) to decide which ones to keep.  I think I've only edited the ones that stood out strongest to me.
