I really like the first shot. It is sharp, and nicely composed.

Really nice, Shalu. I'm curious; Are you perhaps shooting off a tripod or monopod? Your magnification is 1120, your aperature is f/11 (for DOF I assume), and you shutter speed is only 1/250 sec. I would think, hand holding would be pretty tough.

Raven Dinning on a Cottontail Rabbit

I'm assuming this raven scavenged the rabbit. The bird easily flew away with the rabbit, which I did not think it would be able to do.

Very nice one, Mike! I always like to see predator/prey shots, even if it is scavenging! :-P

Thank you and good observation, Mike! This is one of those rare times that I actually used a tripod :lol::-P, because it is a stationary bird. I shoot wide open(should be f/8 in this case) most of the time. When I only used 2X initially, it was wide open at f/5.6. But after I added 1.4X, it is still at f/5.6, because the camera only knows about the 1.4X, does not know about the 2X anymore. So f/5.6 shown in the camera is really f/11. I should adjust the camera f stop to f/4 (real f/8),but I forgot :lol: :p

Northern flicker from the same session.
