Hey Ed,
My guess is that's a Red Tail Hawk. I had one fly over my yard the other day and I grabbed a shot but the pix were pretty bad.

Hi Ed! My, if these are pictures of what you can take when you can't go anywhere... I can only wonder what pictures you would show if you did... Anyway, many thanks for the photos... such beautiful red in picture number 4... the last picture... well the bird almost looks like he is posing for you.

Ed, may I ask... do you use a tripod with your lense... these are so very clear. Or are these handheld... and it is stabilization in the camera... ?

All the best.

Ned

I used a Pentax K10D camera with a Sigma 50-500mm f/4-6.3 APO DG EX lens and a Bogen-Manfrotto 3011 tripod. Most times I shoot handheld with Anti-Shake turned on but when shooting from a tripod I turn the Anti-Shake off as it can induce enough vibration to cause blur in the photo. I usually sit in my rocking chair with a Beer beside me and either my pipe or some small cigars to smoke on. LOL A lazy man's way...But it works for me.

Wow, Ed! The Photo says it all!!! great.. and thanks for the info about the Anti-Shake and when to turn it off... that is good to know...

Ah, so your in to cigars and beer. I love "bitter beer" (don't let the name fool you)... that I had ALL the time back in England... but I get the good stuff at an Irish pub here in town... I enjoy a good cigar... and my wife makes the best "Steak and Guinness" pie in Finland. Yes, we use Guinness in food whenever possible.

Take care and all the best.

I just noticed the bird photos after your patio-photo set up... spot on pictures, Ed... I love the second one... so that picture was also taken with your 50-500mm... amazing!!! One really can appreciate the details of the feathers... colour... Amazing pictures, Ed.

All the best.
