    Well I've been shooting a bit short for the past week. I sent my 500 F4 in for a inner element cleaning as it had some kind of dust/moisture/fungus on the inner elements. Spent a lot of time with some local red tails with the 300 F4 and 1D Mark IV. Locally they are very cooperative and 300 was enough.. By the way, if anyone is looking for a 300 F4,shoot me a message, the 500 F4 is coming back today and I probably won't be using it... Thanks for looking and comments welcome.. And no, I do not bait these hawks...

    5 This Hawk actually fumbled his mouse into the pine tree and had a heck of a time grabbing it and trying to land on another branch to finish his lunch...

    I am starting to think these are stuffed and in a museum, and you are just photoshopping them into backgrounds! :biggrin-93:

    The whole set is great, and I love #6! :)
