I was once again out shooting trains, when this beautiful bird all but posed for me over the field next to the tracks. I could have used some extra reach on a few of them, but the 100-400 proved able to get some good shots. It was just before dusk when they come out to hunt I guess. I love the red eyes these birds have.
Picking a spot
Full hover mode, looking for movement below (or what I like to call the "album cover" pose).
He's (or she's) found something
In for the kill
It disappeared into tall grass, then took off away from me with whatever was it's dinner to go eat in a tree at the opposite side of the field. I will have to bring some bigger artillery to this spot next weekend
