More pure excellence Mike. Wish I knew how you do it. Steady hands, a good eye, and a good grasp of composition and exposure skills might have something to do with it I guess.... :wink:

Excuse me, but I must go throw my camera and lenses in the trash. The gear may be fine, but after seeing Mike's consistently brilliant results, I realize I suffer from an absence of talent.

How do you do it Mike?

A no big trick, these guys make nice little static models, when they come by, the key is like you with your eagles be patient letting them come and get used to you waiting for them to land where you want and being ready.

Well the reason they are in the front yard is cause this beast roams the back yard.

Stop it wont be able to put my hat on anymore.
Like I said to Frank, spending the time to get to know these guys habits and spending hours out there waiting for them to land in just the right spot, any one could do it.
