Thanks @kittykat23uk. How about one of the first shots taken with the brand new 7D mark II from our recent Kruger trip?

Thanks @JohnR

 

Here's a white-backed vulture coming in to land, with his full landing gear and attack systems out to get a prime spot at the carcass.

The fabulous lammergayer. Easily seen in the Simiens. Well say, about after an hour's wait for one to fly along the escarpment.

For sure.  Here is a small pair of pied kingfishers.  Small JPEGs left from a hard drive crash (before I thought about proper backup strategies).

Maybe @Ben mosquito will give it a go?
