    I found myself a young Red Tail Hawk that likes to have his photo taken.

    ^^ I agree...nice closeups, and the stance/position of the hawk in 4 and 5 makes them my faves of this series.

    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.
