I realized I'd left out the data on that rufous Red Tail.   5Diii, 400 DO, shot at ISO 320, 1/1600 at f7.1, M setting, central focus points only.  Here's another image of the same bird.

Love that male cardinal!  And, while we're on the subject of red birds, here's a so-called "rufous morph" Red-tailed Hawk.

Sturm und Drang, Part II.  No, this juvenile Red Tail is not pursuing this blackbird.  They were both perched and took off simultaneously with a resulting near-collision in flight.

5Diii, 400DO, ISO 400, M Mode, f6.3 @ 1/1250

Sturm und Drang.  Went out to look for hawks today and found this very athletic Red Tail doing an aerobatic maneuver.

5Diii, 400 DO, ISO 500, M mode, 1/1250 @ f6.3.

I thought I'd add one of my own to all of these cute dog photos.

Dang!  It's amazing how many fantastic photos get added to this particular forum on an almost daily basis.  Here's my contribution for today.  Yellow-rumped Warbler.  5Diii, 400 DO, ISO 400, F 7.1 at 1/125.

I find kestrels to be almost impossible to photograph.  99x out of a hundred they fly long before I can set up to take a picture.  Yesterday I was out with a friend photographing hawks.  It was late in the day -- just about sunset -- when we saw this kestrel fly up to a wire with a mouse in its talons.  My friend was driving and he pulled to a stop almost underneath the bird.  The bird was plainly reluctant to fly and, perhaps, surrender its dinner and so, instead of flying it gobbled the entire mouse down, head first.  I took these photos out of the passenger side window of the car, with a 5Diii and a 400DO.  The ISO was 640, and it was set to 1/1000 at f6.3.

Here's one more.  It was a rare overcast day in southeastern Arizona.  The sky was still filled with clouds but I caught this juvenile Red Tail (not the same bird as in the previous shot) just as the sun broke through.
