...I'm hooked.
And with "being hooked" means a tonne of lens lust. :Curved:
Let's see how far I can go with the 70-200 VRI + TC17e II before I crack.
Enjoy.

Those are pretty fine shots all the way around. It's nearly impossible to get any black feather detail in a red-wing and not clip the red. Good job! Even though he's not in sun, I really like the first Red-Tailed shot. He's on a mission!:smile:

Thanks for the comments, Tim.
I'm hoping to get better shots of that hawk, now that I know where he hangs out. :D

Really nice job. Like them all. And as for the lens lust...I give it about a month with that lens combo, if you're intent on shooting birds, before you crack.

Thanks, Rich.
You may be right about me cracking in a month.
The missus said I was talking in my sleep last night and the last word that came out of my mouth was "lens". Lol.

Nothing wrong with these shots! The dove shot was not "lucky". Had you not been there and prepared you would have not got the shot.
