    Seems as though this bird is perched just waiting for me on the way to work in the morning...and today, there wasn't a cloud in the sky! Unfortunately, I couldn't hang around long enough for it to decide to fly....

    original.

    Hi Frank

    500 and TC14EII from a fair distance away.

    This morning he was perched on a dead tree that was about 25 yards out into the beaver pond and he was way up in up in the very top.

    I was about 25 yards away from the edge of the water and that tree therefore was 50 yards from me.

  9. Excellent Jim. I see he was performing for you with his one leg stand in the last image. Very nice series.
     
  10. The new firmware looks to be working very well...

    I'm sure you're talent as a photographer had nothing to do with it :D 

    Redtails are in my top 3 of all time favorite birdies and you did an excellent job capturing this guy.
