Wow---what a neat shot, Shalu. I kind of looks like it bit off a bit more than it can handle. Definitely a chuckle shot.  :p

Thank you so much, Mike!

Poof found these two hawks trapped in a batting cage on her daily walk.
Police and fire department had no interest. Wildlife resource agency only an answering machine.
She woke me up so on the way to work we got them out and they flew away.

I don't know how to embed a video.

Great rescue work.
They didn't seem in a hurry to fly off.
Beautiful birds.

Beautiful birds.

They were still in shock at being grabbed I think, plus a bit of dehydration...90F here in the afternoons.
I'll be honest with you, I had the shakes afterward ;) I was thinking what could go wrong ha!

Great work MM and Poof, the wildlife caped crusader, and her trusty sidekick! :)
Glad they were ok.

Incredible video and brave action by you. I liked how you pointed the way to freedom for the hawk, classic. Thanks for sharing this video, got my day started off rightly.

Great job, Robert (and Poof)! :-) The poor things looked exhausted.

These are both nice shots, but in my opinion they are a little dark (at least on my screen). You are not getting detail in the shadows. I shoot in manual mode, and take my exposure reading off the sky for birds in flight. If for example, the exposure setting from the sky reads an aperture setting of f/8, the shutter speed is 1/1600 of a sec, and the ISO was 200, I would make an over exposure setting of one and possibly two stops to achieve correct expose for my birds. ....

Interestingly that is exactly how I metered for colour slide film back in the day.

For BIF I tend to meter from the ground with something close to average gray; grass tend to be a bit lighter than avg gray so I would add 0-2/3 stop depending on exact lightness of grass and how white or not the bird is.

European Bee-eater. Perhaps the bird with the most inappropriate name. I have never seen one eating a bee. They eat them if they cannot find anything else, but they avoid them since they have to remove the sting first
