I used a Macro technique here; Focus stacking. They were just too far apart to get both in focus, no matter the aperture. They were sitting stoic, I figured what the heck. So it is 3 shots stacked. One of him in focus, one of her, and one in the middle because they were so far apart.

Normally I like more natural perch, then a fencepost, but how often do you see a pair of hawks together? and so close? I was in my car, and they payed me barely any attention.

So well done, Trevor, I've never tried focus stacking and you may have just persuaded me to!

What presence of mind you had to do this, Trevor; well thought out and well executed.

Great job! I never get close enough to a hawk to get that sort of a shot - then too, I don't really have a birding setup either, so I guess I can't complain too much.

Perfection...you just showed us how to achieve it! Or at least dream about achieving it!

An old fence post with rusty barbed wire is a perfectly good perch. In a grassland habitat, the birds love it. As an old farmer, I have watched many birds doing just this and wishing I had a camera with me.
