Penolta, these are just wonderful and you're to be congratulated for your stealth and patience in bringing us this sequence. Guess I'll have to go out and buy a bigger bird bath :lol:. Thanks for these. Dan

Thanks guys - I appreciate the enthusiastic responses - it was a rare opportunity. :-)

Dan, I still can't believe it let me get within 15 ft. I had seen it in the bath before, but couldn't get past 35 ft without it flushing beforee Icould get the first picture. Must be payback for the doves it has been harvesting at our feeders.

Be sure to see the second series (link above the first image) -- some really wild images there.

Very cool set, and it's not something you see every day.

No, it's not - I was lucky to be able to record it.

Thanks for looking and commenting.

This hawk series is nothing less than remarkable. I enjoyed both these and the ones in the Pentax forum. I'm glad you gave the shooting details in this one because I was wondering how you possibly could have gotten that close to get the kind of detail you did.

You're right, Penlota! Number 7 and number 4 are both great!

Thanks Paul, Flutelady, Dennis and VP.

This one has been pretty skittish - never could get close to it before. This time I think it got accustomed to the me and the camera as I began shootingcontinuously (single shots, no bursts) from a safe distance and andkept it upas I slowly approached.
