I had something unusual happen today. I was in the kictchen getting my coffee when ilooked out the window and I saw what thought was a cat way out in the corner of my back yard. I got my binoculars and saw it was a HAWK. I never seen a hawk around here before! Anyway, these 3 pixs were shot from my kitchen window. It show the incredible range of the H50 zoom.

The frist shot shows no hawk, but the wide angle of my yard so you can see just how much I zoomed in.


The second shot was zoomed to the max from my kitchen window


the 3rd shot was the cropping to bring in the hawk and the power of having 9.1 megapixels.

Wasn't a treat for my birds that visit my bird feeder area. They stayed away for a day they were so scared. The Hawk must have gotten one.

very cool story and shots. it always amazes me how much wildlife can be found close by all around us. even though some of us may live in suburbs or cities, wildlife still finds it's way to exist. we just have to open our eyes and find them. luck helps too!
