Took these with FZ20with TCON 14B for the 2nd picture, at full optical zoom, ISO80, lens wide open in early morning light causing very visible purple fringing.

Both pictures cropped.

Comments welcome

I really like the first one with the out of focus branches. There is purple fringing on the second but it does not overpower the image. Did you PP to remove ? In both images there seems to be a lack of light on the actual hawk.

Hi Hiroshi, good to see a post of yours again. Both shots look good to me especially considering they were at full zoom with the lens wide open.

The image was originally too hot due to the angle of the sun so I took the saturation down a few notches.

Thanks tcook. I forgot to mention that I didn't have time to use a trypod. If I did I would have been able to stop the camera down and reduce the purple fringing and probably would have gotten a sharper picture too.

I would be pleased with these. Birds don't always (or ever) pose right were we want them to at the right time of day so we take what we can get.

Did they fly off while you were taking pictures? Whenever I am taking a sitting bird I put it on burst mode in case the bird takes off. They ususally don't until the burst is over, but I always try.

Yes they did. That's why first there were 2, then 1, then none:-)

Great Caps. Couldn't you try a Amode F/5,6 on tripod ? Maybe some of the shots would have caught them steady.
