It seems that the last 6 months or so I've been AWOL and can only find the time to check in sporadically. I miss all of you up here. Vito jogged me out of my latest zombie state. Luckily, I'd just had a chance a few days earlier to get out.

I was able to visit the Tualatin Hills Nature Park just south of Nike headquarters in between Beaverton and Hillsboro west of Portland, Oregon. Pretty nice deep woods environment and I managed to find a family of 4 Cooper's Hawks also.

This shot is of a juvenile in the middle of enjoying a meal of an American Robin.

20D, 300mm f4L with 1.4xTC, 1/200 @ f5.6, ISO 400

With beautiful photographs like this, you need to stop in more often!! Great capture, I can't think of anything that would improve it, nice and sharp, great color and composition and a great backgroundand DOF. That's a wallhanger!

Great shot, geoff, it's about time you came out of retirement and hit the shutter again. This is a wonderful shot and your background adds another dimension that can be appreciated. Exposure is perfect, even in the background hot spots. Nice job, and good to see you posting again.

Thanks, old friends, for the nice replies. It definitely is good to hear from all of you again and also good to have finally gotten out for some photography (taking care of an aging parent really does take a lot of a person's time).

I have some other poses of the same bird that I've just finished doing some processing on. Later today I'll upload to my server and post here.
