Roosevelt Elk, with the DA* 300 + DA 1.4 converter:
Great shot! I can’t help but feel some nostalgia when I look at excellent DA 300 shots like this...

Strap attachment ring for DFA 150-450mm

My stainless steel eye bolt arrived. I had ordered two actually, one M5, the other M6. The M6 one was too big.
15 mins drilling and tapping the hole, i deliberately made the thread tight so it stays on.

A little dab of Loctite might help as well.

Thanks. This particular bull elk was all by himself (which is somewhat unusual). He had his nose to the ground, chewing on the grass, but kept edging closer and closer, until he posed for a surprisingly long time, as if he wanted his picture taken and wished to show his best side.

Another bull Roosevelt elk, this one the master of a large harem, shot with DA* 300 + DA 1.4x:

Just btw, that weird plane I photographed flying overhead at Burton Mere RSPB (post 30240) is, I have now figured out, an airbus transporter from the Airbus plant at Broughton (makes wings, or at least it does at the mo, if the Nationalists and zealots dump us out of EU then who knows..)

Yes, that Beluga transporter is indeed a monster. Based on the old A300 airframe, it’s set to be replaced by the new XL version based on the A330 in 2020.

Interesting, just wondering how you will fix your strap on it, and how will you carry it better than the regular strap on the camera body...

Howlin Wolves / Loups qui hurlent [Canis lupus]
Omega Park, Montebello, Quebec, CANADA
2018.12.17
(VIDEO--> click on image to play the video on flickr)
=============================
This is the wolf pack that consist of a group of 10 Gray Wolves. They are part of the “Surrounded by wolves!”** activity à Omega Park, which is the only accommodation in North America which allows you to spend the night surrounded by a pack of wolves. You can experience all of this from the comfort of your cabin, for a once in a lifetime experience!

The first time we heard them howling, it was the night before at around 4-5 AM. Yellings awaken us all because it was so loud, even behind that thick bay window. This was so impressive that it gave us goose bumps! I wouldn’t like to hear something like that while being in a small tent in the woods…

I was taking some shots of the wolves when they started getting excited and yelling. I switched to video mode and captured the last minute of the ceremony.

The wolf that was howling, I think it’s the juvenile one (wolf cub). You can also see the “Alpha” male appearing at around 40 s. when he crosses a wooden gate. We can recognize him by it’s whiteish back and feet, thus its nickname “Pattes blanches” (White feet).
This experience will remain in our memories forever!

P.s. the word "Omega" also means the ranking of subordinates in the wolf pack, where the omega male is one of the most submissive individual and often being harassed by the other members of the pack.

Oriole, Original version of the Tamron 150~600mm @ 600mm, Nikon D7100. Rather good bokeh.
Nice image. Should be in the Bokeh Club as good bokeh from long telephoto lenses is very hard to capture.
