A closer look at the bird of prey from my last post.* Again, comments are welcomed and encouraged.

Maybe a little soft - I'm no expert, but I know how difficult it is to focus auto or otherwise when you have a tree full of leaves. Excellent capture nonetheless.

The biggest problem, I think, was that I had only a 50/1.8 lense on and in low-light.* As such, I had the aperature wide open.* This left little room for error in focusing.* *Looking back, I think pushing the ISO would have been smarter.

And yes, I know that lens isn't supposed to have an "e" on the end.* Damn typo's.

Thats one fine looking young hawk (Swainsons perhaps) and a right good shot for the suprise visitor status it had dropping in on you. Great picture!
