This is a shot of a hawk in my garden. shot with the 5D3, 100-400L+1.4x @400 so effective 560mm. Yes, I upgraded last night! Yay! I have not AFMAed it yet so this was shot with live view. The settings were f8, 1/800, ISO 1600. You will notice that he has had a drink of water in the garden as well. :)

So I assume you superglued him to a branch? I've had quite a few hawks in our garden (lots of small Birds in our garden so its inevitable that the hawks hunt there), no matter how slowly and quietly I try to get in position, they are off. I guess my only chance would be if I was sitting there when one landed.
Its certainly a great shot.

Thanks, I wish I had bird whispering skills like some of you guys. No birds eat out of my hand... :)

It has been a hot few days. Been touching 40 C here (104 F). We have two earthenware dishes filled with water in the garden and all kinds of birds, stray cats etc. drink from them. Mr. Hawk had just had a drink and was ambling towards the house. I took the picture through our drawing room window. He was so close that I could not frame the whole bird @400 with the 1.4x multiplier and he is not a particularly big bird! He was may be 4 to 4.5 mtr from me.

Good shots! Is the shot of the eagle a 100% crop?

Wow! "No peectures darling!"  ;)

Can't see EXIF on the iPad. What did you use to shoot it?

I feel I need a sharper lens than the 100-400L for birds. Hopefully the new 100-400 will not be beyond $2500! Otherwise I don't see much else I can get except for the 70-300L or the 300L  :(

5D3 EF100 f/2.8L Macro IS USM,  ISO 160 1/500sec F/2.8
Its the only lense I have that would pass through the mesh at the Zoo. Certainly not photographer-friendly there.
I find myself usually having my 100-400 on the Camera, when at home and I guess I'm quite happy with the results. I'm interested to see if Canon does bring out a newer version soon, I guess the price will determine if I buy it or not.
Cheers Brian
