  7. excellent! the first image is very much my favorite
  8. Thanks everyone

    Oh yes I know.. i was just shooting with a 70-200, fill flash and no converters. Was about 5-8 feet away from them..

    I have many more if you would like me to post some of them?
    I think I will create a website link with a sampling of them...

    Others can be found on my website for now...
  9. Great shots Eric the Rat! The first one is intimidating, the detail on the focus plane is superb too! I would like to see this one with a greater depth of field if you have one...

  10. Wow what an opportunity. Great job.
  11. thanks Brett and James...

    One heck of a great time up there shooting the birdies... I was up there is Friday and shot a few more birds.

    They had a Goshawk, Redtail in free flight cage, Golden Eagle in the flight cage, Ferrougenous? hawk, Turkey Vulture (immature), Kestrel, and a one year old perigrine that had not gotten adult plumage colors yet.. She was still brown...

    This year they used 6 of my images in the calendar and want me to do more for next year already...

    Brett, i will have to see if I have one with greater DOF... Not sure I stopped down anymore...
