These are all just wonderful. I have a red-tailed hawk photo, but it's not nearly great as these. Can I ask what kind of camera you use? Do you have to sit for hours to get these? Just wonderful - I'm going to look for more of your work here.

Hi Houston ol' buddy !! You have presented us once again withfirst class shots. I like the last hawk one in particular, it's a sharp as can be without oversharpening, and the look in his eye is great. I know that a telephone pole can look distracting, however, i suppose that one has to accept that that is what hawks sit on, it's part of their "natural" habitat.

Nice to see your work again !!

Thank you so much for the kind words MsPuck. I use the Canon 20 D and most of the time I have a Canon 100-400L IS lens on it with a Tamron 1.4x TC between them. And if the situation allows me the time I put it all on my Bogen tripod and by this time I can hardly pick it all up. So most of the time I'm hand holding and depending on the IS lens.

Regards

Houston

Hi friend. I'm very glad you made the above statement because I almost didn't post that last Hawk because of the telephone pole (actually a high fence). You know I don't usually do that. I followed that Hawk around for several hours that day and that one is the best I could get of it. So now it's justified with "natual" habitat.
