Went to check out where a pair of red-tails have been preparing a nest. Nothing was happening until I started to leave. Then the crows started making their normal racket when a hawk is near. And ther she was way up just soring a round. she never went to the nest, oh well!! both were with the 20D 500mm & 1.4X TC iso 200 f/5.6 & hand held.

Nice catch with your new lens, dennis - How do you find the lack of IS ?

Thanx for the nice comments!!! Ron & Jake, it is the Canon 500mm f/4 L IS. So Jake there is no lack of IS. With the weight of it and the 20D (approx. 10lbs.) I need all the IS I can get!!!!:lol: I wish someone would build IS in my arms!! Alady, the hawk at times was directly overhead at times and peobably 100-200 feet up maybe a bit more or less, I think as I am not good at gaging distance in a wide open area. Actually the "missed" shots were sharper but, I don't think posting just a wing tip would fly around here!!!:blahpun intended!!)

Pleasure to see these for sure...thanks for the lense info, (tip of the hat to julie...) I'm sure many of us were quietly wondering the same thing.
