I think this is a juvenile Red Tail Hawk. I didn't notice it at the time but if you look in the distance in the third picture you can see a rather large raptor sitting in the tree. Judging by the distance and the size it is most likely a young Eagle.

Upon further review I have decided that this is a Juvenile Red Shouldered Hawk not a Red Tail.

Hard for me to decide between 1 & 2 but I think I like the balance that the branch brings to #1!

I agree with pschooley and jazzmaster, the branch in the backround of pic #1 add to the shot nicely. All great shots though.

Best regards,

Mag

Thank you pschooley, Jazz, and Mag,

I also like the branch in the 1st picture. It does add some symmetry to the shot.
I posted the close up because I was so impressed with how clear it came out. I think I was zoomed to 36x digital on that shot.
I am still getting used to the new lens. And still loving it more and more.
About the only Post Processing I did on these shots was clean up some sky noise. I did a small amount of USM, which I really don't think they needed, and then re-seized for posting.

Thanks for the compliments,

smac

This is not the first great bird shot by you, Smac.

Very nice.
Do you have any additional Tele lens on your FZ20?

Congratulations

Francesco

Thank you Francesco,
Yes, I recently bought the Panasonic LTZ10 teleconverter lens and have been amazed and very pleased with the quality of the telephoto pictures it produces. It's a keeper for sure.

All three excellent. Sorry, fresh out of superlatives. I am partial the the third. Just love how you composed that one.
