You're sure going to some cool places Martin - and getting some neat images to boot. #3 for me!

I am always amazed to see raptors in big cities. The kites flying over the cities in India were as common as pigeons...but my they are very handsome looking birds. Very well done.

Great shots, Martin, with fine detail, sharp focus on the eyes, and rich warm colours.

Terrific job with the short glass on these Martin.
What a great find of a beautiful species... #3 is my favorite, but all are good and were a treat to see.

Looking good Martin. I am liking the "look back" shots. They definitely know ur there.

Brian


They sure did Brian but they were more attracted by the food than worried about me.

WOW !!! 70-200 non captive raptor shooting. Hoo Hoo Gotta love it. I love the colors on them.


Thanks so much Herb and glad you appreciated the short glass.
Its a bit different then shooting with a 500 or 800!

Nice work Martin! Man you were close to these guys, that had to be a big thrill!! Good thing you brought the gear with you

Tim


Sure was Tim.
At one stage it felt like trying to photograph one zebra in a herd they were coming at me so fast and so many.
Cheers,
Martin
