Nice set Herb, I'm going for no.2 as my pick - I like the background colour as well as the bird.

Herb...
Incrediable and outstanding images..!

Can you share your technique on focusing as you shoot as well as mode settings, ie: spot, evaluated...and anything else you can share on your Canon. Are you using monopod or ?

Thanks,
Scuppy

Fantastic photo's as usual Herb!

I did have a technique question on the hawks. Are using a blind? Shoot from car? Stand? How are you getting close enough to get good hunting shots?

I do OK with owls and eagles, but struggle to get good proximity to hunting hawks.

Any tips?

Bill


Dress in full camouflage, make gentle steps, minimize eye contact and approach slowly.

hey herb

these are great. i especially like the second shot with the bird cruising by at eye level. he also has a cool lighting effect on him with the white edges to his whole body. very cool....
