I was trying to get some shots of a couple of pairs of blue winged and green winged teals when this red-tailed hawk flew in and land in a tree about 60-75 yards away. Then another hawk flew in and the following ensued. 20D 500mm & 1.4X TC all at f/5.6 and all ahnd held. I think total time was about 45 seconds.
