Thank you Richard.
That Hawk gave chase and later-on I spotted it munching on a Turtle.
Happy trails.

Paul...the first shot is really a terrific capture. That mockingbird learned a valuable lesson. "Do not mess with big red-shouldered hawks." :mrgreen: Not ever!! :lol:
I'll bet the hawk is going to have a tough time getting his dinner out of that turtle shell.

Those two were mixing It up all morning.
Happy trails.

Nice captures with both these shots, Paul. The hawk that's perched is definitely a red-shouldered hawk, but I think I was wrong about the one I thought was a sharp-shinned hawk. After seeing these more recent shots, I think it's a Cooper's hawk, because it appears to be a larger accipiter than I first thought.

Very nice sharp close-up shot, Sid. Definitely humerus.

That sweet light is sure nice, Shalu. Terrific looking shot.

Beautiful light also and a majestic bird.
Very nicely photographed

Wow, I love that one!

Thank you so much, Mike, Richard and Phil!

Thank you Shalu.
That's a magnificent Eagle capture.

Does attaching a 2x teleconverter change the Sony cameras auto focusing capabilities or minimize the focus points?
Happy trails

Thank you very much, Paul! I shoot with 2X 99% of the time, Sony A9 has full AF capabilities (down to f/16 lens) and remains blazing fast for my 400mm f/2.8 lens.

Awesome close-up eagle shot, Shalu. It's so sharp and lifelike.

Thanks! I was actually on my way out of Pt Reyes when I saw him on a fence. I had to go about a quarter mile before I could turn around, but happily he was still there when I got back :-)
