  2. great pictures Ben...I do believe the unknown is a Northern Harrier or a Sharp Shinned Hawk, depending on the size...

    you have awesome locations for sure down here!
     
  3. They're great shots, Ben, esp #3.

  7. I should have my Sigma 300/2.8 tomorrow, I'm getting excited :)

    I'm looking forward to meeting you!
     
  8. Man, I remember when you were "whining" ( :wink: ) about not ever getting an Osprey shot. Then look what you post! That has got to be the coolest one I've seen yet! Very nicely done!!
     
  9. Actually I would guess you were looking for "gaggle" but then this term is most often applied to geese. In any event you have some fine images here. I love those flying shots when you can see their eye. Well done.

    Afternoon Gordon
    Actually I was trying for Prolifera (can't spell that one either
    :redface: )

    I agree, most of the time I feel no eyes, no shot, most of the time !

    Thanks, thanks and thanks Gale

  17. Great shoots. I love Kestrals they remind me of the little chicken hawk in the old Foghorn Leghorn cartoons :biggrin: I use to see one in NorCal never got a good shot and he seemed to like power poles and lines so the surrounds were never natural :frown:

    Thanks for posting them.
