    I was happy to see this hawk posing for me with its morning catch. It seemed content to have me taken images till a group of kids came by yelling and screaming as kids do.

    I am glad you like them. Funny, but 2 might be my least favorite - tastes are different. This was one of my first attempts using C1 instead of LR to convert an image I like.

    Outstanding! Excellent captures and processing! Hard to pick a fav, but I'll be different....#1 followed by #3....
     
  8. Super sequence, well done...! :)
     
  9. Great set Allen. I like them all - great sharpness and wonderful bg. If forced to pick, I like three as that is the easiest to identify his meal as a frog.
     
  10. Everything...is good about this series..
     
  11. Awesome opportunity and you killed it. 'Love the skin stretching shot.

    Thanks for the replies.

    I like 3 the best - pulling apart its meal.

    Thanks Mike.

    Thanks William.

    Yes, I agree.

    I think the series works well too (as opposed to just posting one.)

    Thanks. I am happy it had the type of meal where it had to find a nice post on which to work its meal.
     
  13. You couldn't have asked for anything better Allan, superb set of images my friend.

    I was happy to find the hawk. Two or three minutes later a group of loud kids came by and it took off.
     
  15. Great series Allan, I think #3 has a great but somewhat gruesome symmetry to it...

    I do like the circle formed by the frog and the hawk's mouth, chest, and legs.

    They're all great, I like #1 the best myself. I think maybe because it feels like a bit more action and the beak is open adding more detail and interest.

    Great shot; great detail and the colors are beautiful!!! I enjoy all photos of Hawks; however, I don't think the Frog is happy!!!!!!!
