My first CLOSE encounter with a bird of prey. Is this a hawk or an osprey? I am not sure. I need to get one of the birding books. I found this guys at Marymoor Park last month. Late late evening with not much light. The shots were underexposed and I had to bump up EV in NC by as much as +1.0EV. I think they turned out well considering the conditions and the underexposure. He was perched on a 25ft tree trunk perch. I got right underneath him and he posed for a minute before he flew away. Unfortunately I couldn't get any shots of him flying as I was surrounded by trees and when he toook off I couldn't see him. Shot with the 70-200VR @ 200mm. I added +1EV, USM, and a +8 contrast boost in Nikon Capture.
