Father and Child by clippercarrillo Father and Child by clippercarrillo
This is a good portrait of Dad and his chick. The father flicker still shows a drop of feeding slurry on beak, from where he was cramming it down junior's throat. This is in my garden, in Overland Park, Kansas, USA.

Ohhh, such a gorgeous species :love: Also really interesting to see those little differences in their plumage, with the little one still being much 'messier' than dad with his impeccable markings :D

Canon EF 300mm L IS II with a 2x EF extender behind it, so I'm working with the really good glass up front. Its a great lens.

Whoa, looked up that lens on amazon and the price made my jaw drop!! Heh, I might be 60 by the time I get a lens like that! Awesome though, you sure do take great pics! :D

Good guess! I was 63 when I bought it, by which age I was able to say, "Screw it, I will do one more stupid thing before I die!! So it wasn't that at 63 I had the money (which I only just had--I'm on the verge of poor), but rather I decided to enter into a new age of abandon, and surrender to my love of birds. I am of the opinion now that photography is all about the glass, and if I were to start all over, I would have purchased the best lenses when much younger. This lens is forcing me to reinvent myself as a photographer, and it pushes me to be as good as the glass. Thanks for your comments and interest. Loved your jaguar shot. Now you must get one in the wild! (Someday)

Oh goodness so you are saying I'll be 60+ by the time I get this lens? :XD:
Ha ha, I would have gotten them already myself, had I had any means to do so. The L-series glass is indeed amazing, but there IS one thing I could do, and that's to rent some lenses, and get to use them that way. ;)

Thank you! As for meeting a jaguar in the wild, not very likely. I refuse to go to any country which requires shots in order to go there! (And for a jaguar I believe that would mean Africa.)

For the jaguar, you would have to go to central or south america, but it's cousin the cougar is plentiful in North America, where you would need no shots. I saw one in the wild once, and dream of doing so again. They run in a liquid way, and remind one of water; smooth and swift as they vanish.

You're a good man, Steven. I like sharing the shots with you. Its a bit like having you here, although, if you were, I'm sure we'd be talking religion, and wondering about the visibility of Christ in all things, especially nature.

I just checked my field guide, and you are correct. It is the father. I'll see if I can edit all my texts. Thanks!!!

I am ready to agree with you. What field markings make you think so? It is important to have a correct record. And thanks for your interest, by the way!!!
