    Default Hawks and Geese

    I went out this past Sunday to see what I could shoot and here are some of my shots.

    A few geese near my house.


    Here I found a field with a bunch of bird houses all over the place and I noticed something in a tree. It was a Hawk. This Hawk was about 500 feet away and I had my 100-400mm @ 400mm. Oh how I wish i had a 600 or 800mm.I really had to crop these in.


    This is the field I shot across and if you look in the center 1/2 way up the tree you should see the Hawk.


    Here it is taking flight.



    Then on the way home I seen this one on a electric wire looking at something on the ground so I pulled a U-turn to shoot it.


    I spooked it so it flew to a pole a few sections down so of course I followed.



    I do have plans on getting back to the field with all the bird houses. It is near a resivoir so I am hoping it will have more Hawks and maybe some Eagles.

    Chris, you did a truly marvelous job, especially with the "in flight" photos.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Here are sme shots I got at the field I found last weekend. I can't wait to get there this spring because there is all kinds of birds here. Blue Jays,Cardinals and some little yellow birds(?) etc. I was haveing a great time shooting but the all of a sudden my camera said I had to format my card. This did happen once before when I was shooting in the cold. It was 14 degrees this morning. If I held the card in my hands for a while I would be able to shoot a bit more. If there is anybody else that shoots in the cold. Do you have this problem? Help!!
