Got out today to try my luck with swallow flight shots. This hawk flew over and I captured a few shots. Both shots with 20D 500mm f/5.6 iso 400 EC +1 SS 1/2000 & 1/1600 handheld

thanx all for the comments and critiques. buzzsaw: I use aperature prioritymost of the time, except macros when I use manual mode. Bobby: yeah I see the halos now. It was late and I was tired and wasn't sure if they were halos or just my eyes. Dave: gee I do see a slight magenta hue. Actually I did try adjusting the color but nothing really looked natural so I left it as is. Ken: raptors are probably my favorite birds. Unfortunately I don't see many other than red-tails. There's been a kestrel in the area I frequent and last year a northern harrier. To all, thax again!!
