    Where were you that you saw all these birds? The sparrow, this red tailed hawk... and all "posing" for you so nicely!!! Very well done. The profile of the hawk is a classic - may I copy it and give to my daughter so she can try to draw it (and thus follow in LittleMan's trail of painting photorealistic birds of prey at a very young age ;))???

    The first shot is an awesome capture! Such a majestic looking bird. What size lens were you using?

    I had my 300 mm lens on. He was hanging around a marshy area in Madison Wisconsin. This was on a well travled path by humans, and it showed, as he really didnt care that I was around, so I was able to get close to him. About 20 feet away.

    Do you know there are contests for this type of stuff? All the bird photos I've seen on this forum are excellent. Even if you don't win, at least try! I really can't believe they get much better...
