#1Hi all!

Actually I'm not new to the forum but had to change email and name (Cool Breeze)to get back in. Anyway I got my first Sharp-shinned yesterday and wanted to share. I could not get a shot without a branch (must be mandatory I guess). He was very patient with me and gave me all the time I needed, andI was able to get about 14' from him. Hope you enjoy!

Will

I know what you mean, it always seems that something is getting in the way.:evil:
But, what really makes these shots work for me, is the sharp focus on the eyes. I think the dense foliage actually gives the shot depth and atmosphere. I feel like I am being given a rare previlage of viewing the subject in it's own habitat. Of couse I would always prefer a clear unobstructed view, but in this case I think it works .

Nice shots Will. Good to see you back. I too have the "filter" problem with the Hawks in our area. Seems that over 90% of the time there's an obstruction. I guess we have to take what we can get. These are well done. At least you caught the head without any filters....cheers...Don

cool sharpy shot will. even though the is some cover that is blocking full clear view, the eyes and head are nicely capture which is most important. good work and keep them coming.
