Very lucky capture and well done getting such clear and sharp shots!
was the bird traveling far with his kill or was it just a short flap away from the killzone?
Thanks! I actually had the WRONG lens on for this. I was going to shoot a landscape shot with my 24-105mm when I heard a commotion in the bushes. He and his dinner were about 30 feet away. He killed the rabbit before I got there and was standing on him in pic#3. Then he flew away with it in pics #1 and #2.
AWMSOME... WILD.. SUPER.. Sharp and Clear
I have a pair of hawks that bring their kill into our yard to eat. I hate when they bring the rabbits in.
Thanks everyone! I also have some pictures of the hawk dropping the rabbit on the ground, and another one of the poor dead fellow. But I figured no one really want's to see that.
I would like to see the other shots, first three are amazing
That rabbit got OWNED!
No I'm kidding, anyway great capture!
I love the first shot best. :thumbup:
that awesome. The only times a saw a hawk grab a rabbit was when i had the rabbit on a rope and pulling it behind me (was a dead rabbit btw) Did that too train a hawk to use for hunting.
Really a thrilling sight to see, i cant imagine to see it in the wild like that. And you captured it very well too
Wow, must look great enlarged! Very lucky capture Conradtan, very impressive!
Wow, how much did you sharpen those images? Where they really blurry or something?
Its a cool shot.
I used ACDSee Pro 2 to sharpen them the default: threshold - 10, radius - 5, and amount - 100. It has always worked for me. The images were a bit blurry for sure. Haha! Only the right location at the right time with the right gear at the wrong settings. I was shooting landscapes with my 5D at the time with my 24-105mm set to JPEG and full saturation as it was a grey, cloudy day.
