    I had the pleasure of spending a few days with a group of SEO's recently and, although I think they have moved on now, I managed to get some nice shots of this beautiful bird. One of my favrouties was this one as I really like the eye contact. D300 with 600 + 1.4x TC, 1/320, ISO 1600

    More from the series can be found here for anyone who would like to see them :)

    Oh. My. Goodness.

    Phenomenal shot. As you say, the eye contact really makes it. (And now I know what the last sight is for many a fieldmouse, rabbit etc)

    beauty of a shot and the eye contact (especailly as he is not flying towards you) is fantastic!
    Great work

    It is so good it just doesn't look real ;-) Honestly would have guessed photoshop had a hand in it. The eyes really make it as others have said.
