      Remember folks, "wildlife" does not include zoo/museum/park photos. If the creature is in captivity, it ain't wild. Otherwise, I remember this old thread and wondered why it never really took off. I don't personally have a lot of wildlife shots

      I've shared most of these on here before, I think. From a trip to Kenya last year. These are from Lake Nakuru and the Masaai Mara.

      i saw that in the first post but didnt want to start a new thread when one for animals already existed and died. I figured it was a better use of the vortex to bump an old thread that had a good start and modify it slightly so that it got more responses.

      I can just start a new thread titled "Post your Animal pictures" if that would be better.

      I borrowed a friends 100-400L. What a step up from my lenses.
      Here are a few, the only one I did anything buy crop was the killdeer pic because it got washed out in the bright light.

      I really enjoyed my 100-400L for the two years I had it, but I got sick of sending it off to Canon for cleaning and eventually sold it. The 100-400 is the biggest vacuum that Canon makes... fills up with dust within a couple weekends of use I just use my 300/4is with tele-converter now.

      I feel like my shots are getting better. not every one but many of them are getting there.
      here are a few of the shots i took this morning at Agua Caliente Park here in tucson. Its a natural spring pond so there are almost always things to see there.
