Default Out hunting

This young Red-shouldered hawk missed his target at my feeding station but followed it to a huge rose bush across the street. Here he is attempting to flush it out.

LOL. He probably waited a long time. Good capture.

This reminds me of my friend Rich who was at the zoo looking at the tigers. A bird flew into the middle of a very thick bush near one of the tigers (and near Rich). The tiger walked over, took a look, and with one swoop of a paw it grabbed the bird and swallowed it, leaving a major hole in the bush. Rich said it was the most awesome display of speed and power he ever saw. Also he said wished he had brought a change of underwear.

Nice shot Gary, I see 400mm, what kind of lens did you use for this?

Thanks, Lordje. I used the 50-200mm with EC-20. Also, bear in mind that 95% of my bird images are made through double-glaze windows.

@Gary: I was able to buy a 50-200 at Ebay (budget not that big for my hobby) now I am looking out for receiving it since I saw many very good shots with this lens.

It is the best lens I have ever used on my E-620, Lordje. You're in for a real treat. It's a bit heavy but nothing overwhelming.
