Most of these were shot with a EOS 5D mark IV and EOS 7D mark II with 100-400mm L II or 70-300mm L II lenses, but you'll have to look at the EXIF to see which. The ISS was shot with the 100-400 and a 1.4III extender. The Hoverfly was shot using the EF 100mm L macro.

 

I was laying on my back shooting Swallow-tailed Kites and this shot presented itself.

Swallow-tailed Kite. These are impressive birds with a 4'+ wingspan.

My complements on fine photos with great detail. The first one with the airliner and moon top them all. Surprising what we get when we least expect it.

Thank you. I was hoping for a Swallow-tailed Kite to fly across it. And yes, the least expected shots are usually the most exciting.
