  1. Thanks for the input!

    Unfortunately I do not have other pictures.. the bird was gone too quickly @Peromyscus. Not sure about the Grashopper Warbler, the tail does not seem to fit in my eyes. If I look at the picture and compare with the Dunnock, I kind of see some similarities such as the gray neck and the small white wing bar. 

    On the other hand the streaking does not seem to fit a Dunnock, as is the dark eye

  2. In my head, this Caribbean Elaenia should have turned out better… When taking the pictures I was quite pleased since it got very close to us after a while, but seeing the result on the big screen I was less excited. But still a decent enough picture if I compare it to the rest of the “Top photos” from eBird on this species 😄

  3. The bill first led me to black-crowned but on pictures yellow-crowned sometimes also shows some yellow in the bill and the eye looks more like for the Yellow-crowned? Or is the eye not a distinctive feature and gives the brownish-tint and fine streaking the best indication (Black)?

    Seen in Aruba 2 weeks ago, but since they are also resident in the US, thought I can also post it here (since more people look here).

  4. Snorkeling is indeed absolutely amazing @Clip! It has been my hobby for a long time; every time we visited family in the Caribbean and we went swimming I had my goggles on. This year, however, I thought to myself, let's buy some accessories to make pictures from the wildlife below the sea level.

    I did already have a Canon G7X mark II which my girlfriend uses extensively when we are on a holiday, let's see if there is an underwater case for this camera that I can buy. Apparently there was one; the Canon WP-DC55. Below is a picture that I took with that setup. It was a bit of an investment, but it payed off big time!

    My friend just got the R5/100-500 setup and speaks wonders about the image quality with a 1.4 extender. Almost no noticeable decrease at all. Crazy. He also routinely shoots at ridiculous ISO and the photos turn out great. That camera is a beast. 

    I will agree to this! Last year I upgraded from the 7DmkII to the R5 with the 100-500 and it was well worth the investment! I cannot speak about other camera brads but I am very happy with this combo 🙂
