And a handsome one.

My favourite part about wildlife photography is the thrill of the hunt.  This guy has been hanging around my house for 3 weeks...taunting me, but always flying away when I grab the camera.  Today, I was patient, and lucky and got him.  Such a feeling of satisfaction.

Beautiful!
The background complements the bird nicely and the colours are so rich

The word for "doing wild life photography" in my language literary means "photohuniting" :)

Does that mean you like fishing?  Or you are chasing butterflies?   ;)

I do.
A day out on the lake on a boat is most excellent, catching a fish is the cream.

Not sure what hawk this is. Possibly a dark morph ferruginous? If anyone knows, please inform me.  :)

Hornbills in the wild. The male black hornbill is from the 400mm DO II +2xTC at 800mm on the 5dIV, the Rhinoceros Hornbill from my wife's 100-400mm II on the 5DSR at 40m - it had to be pushed by +3ev as it was very underexposed. The 5DSR is damn good.
5D IV, 5DS R, 400mm DO II, 1.4xTC III, 2xTC III, EF 1.8 STM,  EF 24-105, 100-400 II, EF-S 15-85, Sigma 150-600mm C, EOS-M5 15-45, f/2 22, 11-22, Samyang 8mm f/2.8 fisheye: sold 7D II, EOS-M, Powershot G3 X,  Sigma 10-20, EF 300/2.8 II, 70-200/4 IS.

I can't guess but I'll try to remember to do some checking.  Now for a question, were you able to coax him off there to try some BIF?  That would be fun!
