Hope he didn't mind :biggrin: and hope you like :wink:
Kinda looks like I wasn't invited :biggrin:
Outstanding Ben. How did you get so close to the sucker?
Cool shots Ben, luv the first.....man those raptors are captivating, then again I dont have to tell you this :biggrin: Are these in the wild??
Here's my take on what happened.....
Young RTH caught this squirrel ..... City wildlife manager came over and said let me take you guys over to where I saw him (good customer service Jeff :wink: )
He was trying to eat his meal under a big Walnut tree and just could not get a clear path (branches and such) to fly off with his meal in toe, and decided he wasn't leaving it. So held his ground and Mantel his catch.
Jeff and I were careful not to get to pushy about it, but did manage to crawl to within about 10ft!!
Great shots and a super story!
oh yea man!!!!!!!!!!!
I had a red shoulder fly down into my yard and pick up a little songbird and fly off with him the other day of course it happened so quick I could not get a sot off

Most excellent Ben. I'm beginning to suspect you of wearing musk of small rodent or something. Never seen anyone that has the skill to get this close to so many raptors.:wink:
Wow, you were right on top of that guy. The bug picture is very nice.
Great shots and story Ben.
Nice shots Ben! Nice and sharp! Great quality for higher ISO as well!
Hi Keith and Thanks
Yes in the wild....... see reply to Harry
Place is called Sepuvleda Wildlife Area, fun place to go but takes forever to get home traffic on Frwy sucks
never know if my writing makes any sense
Oh yeah I know that pain I could fills volumes with the shots I've missed. I guess we can only be glad we got to see them in the 1st place !!
Ben that must have been such a rush being so close. wonderful captures.
Sorry Frank no Rodent musk but that's a thought :biggrin:
Just a whole lot of Lady Luck :wink:
but you got me what Bug Picture ??
Awesome catch Ben! Great detail, and SO close! Say, are you using an 300f4 + TC for these? If so, I'd like your opinions on it's focussing abilities. thinking about one for myself!
