Posted in 'Birds section' as well, thought it should also go here to show off the glass.
Handheld with the 1Dmk4
I spent a few hours yesterday at the Hawk Conservancy and I'm still changing my mind every 10 minutes as to which shots to put up - so closing my eyes and clicking to choose give you. . . . . . .
#1 - 1/1600, f/2.8, iso 500 I believe this was the 'Siberian Eagle Owl' - take off
#2 - 1/1600, f/2.8, iso 500 How low can you go? (un-cropped)
#3 - 1/1600, f/2.8, iso 500 mouse eye view,crop from above photo
#4 - 1/2000, f/2.8, iso 320 Snowy on the approach
#5 - 1/2000, f/2.8, iso 320 tickling the grass on the fly home real shame it's grass and not snow!
#6 - 1/2000, f/2.8, iso 1250 one of the eagles fishing
Few of the Black Tailed Hawks, Practising how to meter on the bird not the sky so I didn't end up with a load of silhouettes.
#7 - 1/2000, f/2.8, iso 320
#8 - 1/2000, f/2.8, iso 400 one of my favourites blown up large
Was going to post up more but I would no doubtedly keep changing my mind so if you want to see the rest please take a look HERE
