I stumbled across a couple of hawks this morning while walking around my local pond. One Red Tail and one Red Shoulder who I believe is a bit long in the beak since he (or she) had the reddest chest I had ever seen. It almost looked like a large Robin! These were all taken with D300 and 300mm f/4 AF-S hand held (I left my monopod at home like an idiot). Red Tail Red Shoulder These are just the first couple I've processed, more to come later, if any of them actually turned out decent! :biggrin: Comments and critiques are welcome.
