  1. Hi all. I was sitting at my computer and looked out the window and my local hawk was perched very nicely on my fence. I got my camera, opened the door and he stayed around for about 6 nice shots:biggrin:.

    I guess the bird has flown again, cause I can't see it either. :) 

  8. Sorry guys:frown:::rolleyes:  Fixed it. Got him to fly back:wink:

  9. Great looking bird Nancy
  10. WOW! That's one beautiful birdie!:biggrin: Lucky you!:tongue::wink::biggrin:
  11. Thanks all. Yes, very lucky, I am!! I do think he was looking at who was at the feeders that I have in the yard. Sad to say, but I guess that is the way of the world. But, it is great that he seems to have gotten use to our presence.

  12. Nancy,

    Beautiful catch! Some days all you have to do is look around! So glad your camera was close by so you could share this.

    God bless.
  13. Thanks Doug. I always have my camera at the ready. You just do not know what will show up and the 70-300VR is perfect for this, no setting up a tripod and such. Although I must admit I have my tripod with my 300 2.8 and the 1.4tc always setup also:smile:

    Great catch Nancy
    Nice image
  15. Hey Nancy it looks like you may have an immature red shoulder there and almost to adult stage.
    I had trouble posting an image but Gale picked it up and it was the new box that comes up has an http in it already and it does not delete when you paste yours in so no image. Try highlighting the http in the box when it comes up delete it and than paste yours in there.
  16. Thanks all:smile:! Ok, red-shouldered, thanks. Will change titles now in website. Lou, thats what I worked out in the end about posting, thanks:tongue:.

    Congrats Nancy, this is a very nice capture. I'd be proud that have this image on my wall. Keep up the great shooting.
  18. Thanks Frank:smile:! And I have changed over to that Lustre paper. Very nice results.
