  1. 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!
  2. Thanks, much appreciated! Your Snipe is amazing as well
  3. Usually, I don’t like big shorebirds like pelicans because they are “easy” to approach but difficult to get a good photo/composition. However, I quite like this one with the sea splashing in the background. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/470487251
  4. Not sure how you can take pictures, cull, edit, and subsequently post the best ones, haha. So over the next few days, I will show some birds from our recent trip to Curaçao. https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/470206431 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/470206681
  5. From my recent visit in Curaçao in the lower Caribbean. Taken on Jul 9 at Boca St. Michiel. A Willet Perhaps?
  6. Always fun to see them feeding their young (at a safe distance). https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/446174871 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/446174861
  7. 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 ?
  8. I am still amazed how this snake (Western Fox Snake? in Rochester, MN) got so high up in the tree!

  14. I see! Yes it is always a good idea to keep your skills in the best shape they can be ?
  15. Could you please clean the pond next time I come and take your picture? Thank you! https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/436026841 https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/436026831
  16. Nice shots! A single point autofocus does not work in these circumstances?
  17. This inspired me to also have a look and saw my Great Cormorant at #10 and my Tufted Duck at #15 ?
  18. This time with a bit more scenery since the Jay is usually not easy to approach... https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/435625251
  19. Got lucky with this Long-tailed Tit this morning! It gave me a full 3 seconds to take its picture ? https://macaulaylibrary.org/asset/435327121
