    All of these are amazing but #9 is one of a kind. Stunning as usual.

    Thanks everyone.. anytime Airic.. it's there everytime I drive by this spot.

    Joat.. I use a Nikon D70, and the lens here is the 80-400 VR, as recomended by Airic. works well.

    Thanks Bill.. he gave me the evil stare, because I was too close to the mouse he was eyeing up for dinner!! He got it anyway, and what a thrill to shoot all this.

    I mean, he does not even let you watch him eat lunch with your camera in front of your eyes, but he even POSES and SMILES for you! That is too much for me. That is toooooooo much!
    How can I communicate to our German hawks that they might as well be friendly and let an eager elderly photographer (me) get nearer to take their picture, if Canadian hawks already know that!?!?!?!?!?!?

    I remember when I had a 35mm years ago, and wanted hawk shots, but couldn't get near them... I don't remember what length of lens I had, but it wasn't much.. I tried and failed, and gave up. But after seening Canoncan's threads in here last winter, I was inspired, and it's been a passion ever since. Thanks Peter!
