These are REALLY big crops of a red-tailed hawk take off and flight taken with the 500mm +1.4tc on the 1Dx.
With the busy background I was quite happy to find the camera followed and locked on quite well. I can just imagine how well it will perform on relatively stationary big cats but would be thrilled to see it work so well on a racing cheetah.

So you decided to keep it

Yes indeed that's some fine tracking with a tc and all that stuff in the background!! I'm sure tracking a turbo cat will be a piece of cake

Great shots of the RTH The first looks like he is trying to uproot the tree

Practice, practice, practice with that body, you need to be well tuned for your next adventure.

Beautiful bird, Eric.
Beautiful images, Eric.
Beautiful day in Oregon, Eric .
And the feather shadows on your second image add a very special touch.
(One might even say a "beautiful" touch.)

Yes the photograph did well Eric and the camera listened. Now how will you feel if that is a charging cheetah?

Remember Wacky Roger? Next time use a Crow Call and you will get a look at

Interesting how much happens in fractions of a second, your EXIF shows the last three exposures all in the same second of time, a little burst from your trigger finger

Nice lift off..............could you clone out those leaves please
