The following shot taken with my new gear, 10D & 100-400L, which I got last week. Jpeg mode with default params. Minor levels and USM (still trying to learn post processing). I am happy with what I got.

Mama coot diving for food











Baby coot by itself

Hi there, bobbyz, welcome to the group! These are some pretty good photos of a parent and child coot.

I like pictures #1-3 because they tell a story: Mamais getting food, child is posturing for it in #2 and #3.

I'll leave the technical critique to the experts (you know... Norm, Eric S, Eric CAN).

Congrats on your 10D and L lens. It's the kind of equipment I would like but can't afford (yet).

Nice action shots.

Boy that setup really gets you some great detail. That last shot of the baby looks clear as a bell!

How did you get so close!

I basically sit on the ground on the edge of the lake and slowly moved towards them. They seemed to be too busy having their dinner so didn't care for me that much.
