Beautiful birds and an excellent job on the captures! Exposure is great on all of these. I was going to ask if you digiscoped these but will ask insteadhow you got those with 133mm? Great job either way.

Hi VP,

Thanks! Actually it gets a bit confusing. Three of them were taken with a non-reporting 1.4x tele converter on my 70-200 so the 133mm is actually 186 mm but the FOV is with a 1.6x sensor so very close to a 300mm FOV,

The other two were at a true 238mm and 280mm so the FOV's were about 380mm and 448 mm. Some cropping was also done.

I've been shooting hawks in the Cimarron area so long that I've pretty well got it down to a science there - LOL. They are not too flighty in the area because no one really tries to spook them. Local ranchers really appreciate them for their rodent and snake control and pretty much leave them alone so they have become fairly easy to get reasonably close to.

Here's another just taking off:



Best regards,



Lin

Thanks B,

They are fun subjects to shoot - never a dull moment and lots of color...

Best regards,

Thanks, Lin. I should have thought, I have non-reporting TC also. That is still getting pretty close at those short lens length. Size of the bird helps :-) Not often I get the chance at that, usually only out west. Again, nice work.
