    Does anyone use a sort of hide?

    Curious to know if anyone here uses a portable hide or ghillie suit type setup for wildlife photography. I've been reading my copy of the Wildlife Photographer of the Year: Portfolio 22 book (winning/commended images from the 2012 competition), and noted in a few places where photographers have...

    Canon Any Canon R8 users? Mulling one to complement/replace m43 setup for wildlife and general photography

    As title, couldn't see an R8 thread in the showcase. I'm feeling uninspired by the lens lineup within m43 - sold my 100-300ii with a view to upgrading to a better tele, but none of them grabbed me particularly. Also been shooting a lot indoors over the last month or two (grim UK winter), and...

    Advice Wanted Which combination for photographing small things (birds, wildlife) at long distances

    I have two camera bodies: OM-1 and Fuji X-T5. I want to upgrade a long lens to either the Olympus 300mm f/4 or Fujinon XF 150-600 f/5.6-8 lens. I am mostly interested in anyone who has experience with these two lenses and their evaluation of image quality. (I am not that interested in BIF so...

    Hello from the Pacific Northwest

    Hello, All! Glad to find another community out here. I'm (yet another) refugee coming from our previous community (POTN) that I just saw is shutting down. Sad news there, but understandable. I have been doing digital wildlife/nature/landscape/etc photography since the early 00s and enjoy...

    Animals Otter!

    Somewhat maxed out on luck on the recent vacation up north in Norway. Saw an Otter one day, and the fellow came back for a photo opportunity the next day: Photos are quite heavily cropped and then had a run through Topaz Gigapixel.

    Nature The Yukon and British Columbia

    So I am currently sitting in a hotel room in Ely, Minnesota (gather data for a September Boundary Waters trip) on day 12 of a 14 day trip from Anchorage, Alaska to Flint Michigan. My two days in Ely are the only time I have used a hotel, the rest of the trip has been all camping. Needless to...

    Birds The Fisher

    Didn’t want to swamp the show birds thread with a ton of photos in a single post, but these all belong together. I watched for awhile today as a GBH skillfully fished time and time again, coming up with a fresh fish all but once.

    Fuji Showcase Fujinon XF150-600 f/5.6-8 R LM OIS WR

    I can't believe there's no thread about this lens yet, so I'm starting it! I just got back from a week-long trip to visit my grandkids in Washington State, and I took them again to NW Trek, a large wildlife park that we drove through this time. It was a bit frustrating, because I hadn't...

    Advice Wanted The dilemma of feeding the wildlife

    I have held strong to my convictions of not feeding the wildlife, no matter the temptation, no picture is worth the risk of making wildlife dependent or needy of human interaction. While it is arguable that our impact towards wildlife has made some of them already very dependent on our...

    Video - David Yarrow on how he does wildlife photography

    Watching some photo videos yesterday (after viewing the Fiona Lark vid), this popped up in the recommendations. I found it interesting, and a bit funny in a couple spots.
