Trying to find insipiration now that the flowers, leaves and colors are all gone. Saw this hawk on a light pole while driving, and rushed back with the 500mm F4 P mounted. These are two pics from slightly different angles. Drove slightly closer for one of the shots, and the images were taken pointing at a very steep angle, lens stabilized on the partly closed car window.
The images are cropped ~10 inches out of the 30 that the D800 sensor takes. One of the images was at f/8, which was overkill. f/5.6 is plenty sharp.
