although not very colorful and dynamic, I love the expression of this tired young sparrow after his first flying lesson (which I loved to capture but missed :( )
It is often easy to go for the spectacular and forget the close and tiny. Very nice capture.

Thank you very much.
I was really glad, that it let me get really close to it, 2 m, almost the MFD of the 100-400L.
A few minutes later that little one fell asleep.  :)

sometimes you have to close your eyes to see properly.

I got a chance to play with one of the big white super-tele's this past weekend

Conowingo?  Was there this weekend as well.  Great shot.
1DIV, 5DsR, M3 and too many lenses to list.
Too much time, too little gear...scratch that, reverse it.

Thank you for your comments, Click and Skatol. Indeed this is at Conowingo, I was there with my wife on Sunday morning. It was our first time there and it was also our first time photographing eagles. I heard the action was better on Saturday. I had taken the 800mm f/5.6L on evaluation loan from CPS... amazing lens for perched birds.. a bit hard to maneuver it when the birds were close. I will try to return there with my "regular" gear in a couple of weeks.

Autumn in southeast Arizona means that Ferruginous Hawks are arriving in the flatlands and grasslands.  Here's one taking off, photographed yesterday on the Santa Cruz Flats, about halfway between Tucson and Phoenix.  5Diii. 400DO, "M" setting, 1/1600 @ f7.1.

Loving all the bird of prey shots! Wish we had hummingbirds in Australia they are amazing birds.

Anyway another Tawny Frogmouth, we are fortunate enough to frequently get these around the house pretending to be a fence posts.

Lots of noise out back last night.... just a few Canada geese landed in the bay (about 10,000)... this is a small fraction of the flock...

Shot handheld with a 70-200 at 200mm and 1/250 second and stitched together.... had to do it in a hurry or be late for work...
