Great shot AlanF, I assume you filled the frame or is there some cropping. Either way, very nice. We have red-tails but they never seem to come around my place, hardly ever any hawks to shoot other than high in the sky!
Would you say the 300 X2 is not getting the use it once did?
The 300 is my go-to lens - it is so, so good, and I use it at least a day a week here. But, it was easier to take the Tamron with me on the flights to Boston and then to Halifax Nova Scotia. Sold the Tamron on Friday in anticipation of the new 100-400, which will be easier still for travel.
