    Post your Raptors

    Here was a goshawk I've been stalking around town. I look out my patio door and it's sitting in a tree. It turned out to be the largest Coopers Hawk I've ever seen. Too bad it was 45 yards away.

    This one didn't turn out quite right. No crop on this and just didn't look right. I tried reprocessing below.

    Post your Firework Photos

    I got stuck way too close and had to use a 10mm Roko. It turned out ok but the Zeiss 35mm f/2 Distagon is much better lens. Next Corn Festival I will be better prepared and secure a better spot.

    I was bored waiting for a hawk to fly by. This was taken at about 60ft with a 600mm f4 and a TC 2.0 III (I just got it and wanted to try out).

    What do you shoot warblers in the fall woods with?

    osprey pics

    I was investigating the death of a chick at one of the nests I monitor and took these. All chicks fledged but one of the three seems to have flown into the structure under the nest. The coons worked the carcass over pretty badly so I'm not sure what they'll do with the body. This is a unique...
