We had to set an extra place setting at my Sister's for dinner this evening as we had uninvited (yet allways welcome ;) ) guests.

Landing in the big spruce in the side yard,. this lovely Coopers Hawk was eye level with the second story bedroom windows... Oh what luck.

A few more posted here;

Good thing we had an extra pidgeon! ( yummmmm... tastes like chicken )

I'm beginning to think that Canon is using some of the "eye-controlled AF" that is in the Elan7E "in reverse" in this new 500mm f/4.....

Seems as long as I point the lens in the general direction of a bird,. even with it's super shallow DOF wide open.. it allways just SNAPS onto the eye in perfect focus.

They eyes make the picture. That's a good thing.
