Do they still exist? I feared they are all extinct.

We went on a Manatee journey the other day to Crystal River, about an hour and a half from our place. I was only able to take a few photos along the way to the Manatee preserves by pontoon boat. Here are a few of them:

Yes. Online I read... "it was one of the first species added to the U.S. Endangered Species List in 1973. Today, there are less than 100 Florida panthers left in the wild."

I saw 5 yesterday in a rehab facility. Awesome creatures.

I've been meaning to ask you..... how's the personality of your replacement camera? I know it's different from your first one when it was working perfectly.

In the last little while I have using just about everything, today I used mod 1 on the IS of the 100-400LII and just centre point. I keep trying to use one shot but its a hard road for me. So most of today is servo / back button / although I did get some good stuff of the deer with one shot. The other day the camera was happy with nothing even IS off ...dont know why!!

Thanks! I think it's a Cooper's Hawk, but my first thought when my wife pointed it out was that it was a falcon....

The tail is a little better detailed here, just like a Cooper's Hawk....
