I found myself a young Red Tail Hawk that likes to have his photo taken.
Thanks for looking,
Now those are really nice... esp. 4 & 5
^^ I agree...nice closeups, and the stance/position of the hawk in 4 and 5 makes them my faves of this series.
What lens are you using?
Thanks everyone. These were shot with a Nikon D-200 and the Nikon 70-300VR lens.
In the past two years I have gone through the Nikon 80-400VR lens and Sigma 50-500EX lens and both these lenses fell short of my expectations. The Nikon 70-300VR comes in at a fraction of the price and almost never fails to lock onto a target. At 300mm it lacks reach for wildlife compared to a 500mm but is always sharp so you have the option to crop. A full frame shot is useless if it is not sharp.
Excellent set of portraits of that hawk, well done. I always prefer such images to be sharply focused reflecting a good choice of fast shutter speeds and with shadowed areas reasonably illuminated like you have successful captured here.
Great series!! :thumbup:
oh wow, that is a great set of pics :thumbup:
I really like #5, good stuff
Glad to see you posting again. You have such a talent, especially with things with wings.
All i can say is slurp, lovely shots.
