I got out this weekend and got a couple of so-so pics. My first redtailed hawk and a couple of barn swallows. all taken with a fuji s602z & raynox 2.2X addon tele.

After thinking about the birds, I have to correct their identities. The 1s two are of a blue bird the swallow is a tree swallow and the hak remains a redtailed hawk.

Nice shots, dennis, looks like you were pretty close to that hawk. Good going.

Norm, that hawk was probably 30 meters from me. The first few shots I got of it I was almost directly below but too many branches inhibited any good shots. Then it flew off to the tree in the picture and I had to manually focus to get that image. I'm pleased considering the equipment used. the raynox add on is not the sharpest of lenses. But, now i have my 20D and a 100-400 zoom and will hopefully learn how to use them and get some better quality shots. thanx!!!
