I reasonably confident that my raptor description is correct.

600mm VR was delivered today. Got in a few shots prior to sunset.

Contemplating selling my 500mm VR. I will likely list it in the B/S Forum within the next few days.

C&C Welcome and appreciated.

Those are really pretty hawks. Pretty perch too. Well done!

The hawk ID appears to be correct. The sharpest focus appears to be on the perches behind and above the bird. Those 500 and 600 f4's have very limited dof at f4, especially when the bird leaves the perch towards you.

I agree with Herb's comment. And I'm sure changing the settings on the D4 will help also, I'm so out of it I can't remember the terms for the setting when the focus follows.... Sorry, I'm so out of it...

Yes I had the camera set to the 11fps and so focus was locked on the bird as it left the branch. I have corrected by setting the D4 back to focus tracking at the 10fps rate. I will be back to the nest this evening for more attempts.
