Wonderful set Bret. Love the eye to lens contact it made.

Thanks very much, he really was mad, I think that I was a presence at the dinner hour.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

Heh, Yeah, it was late in the day and all the little dinner snacks were hiding, He did not like me distracting his hunt I believe.

Thanks Cheryl, I may have said it earlier but I sure hope he is here for the winter, maybe I can catch him in some better light. He was quite patient with me. Thanks again!

Some of those poses look like some animated actions that you would see in some kids cartoon. Awesome captures.


My camera doesn't take great pictures.....I do! :rolleyes:

Those are Excellent images ! Seems that hawk was well concentrated on you all through those images !

Yes He was, I was a good ways away to but He knew where I was, I have a bunch more when He was looking for dinner, have to work them up.

Don't you just wonder what he was thinking of our friend Bret-or maybe not:).Off the chart shots, Buddy, and extremely unique, too. Handled the light lik a champ.

Thank you my friend, you are indeed too kind, though I do appreciate it! I have a pretty good idea of what he was thinking lol!
Thanks again....
