My muse is back! Yes, Mr. Hawk payed us a visit today. He came to cool his feet as you can see. I took 88 snaps. Various combinations of 100-400L and the 70-200L with and without the 1.4x. This one is with my 5D3, 100-400L+1.4xiii - so @540mm. 1/320, f8, ISO 320. I have not wiped off the EXIF so you can examine it.

I am entirely satisfied with both the lenses with and without the 1.4xiii. I have noticed that when the pictures are not sharp it is due to shake. AFMA values with and without the 1.4xiii is the same for both lenses! So AFMA of the 1.4xiii is 0. I am happy.  :)

A great muse, very inspirational, love the shot :)

Awesome Coppersmith, Paolo!  Lots of patience! 

Nice wren Snynkka!  The black and red really stands out against the green leaves.

Revup67, really like the pose on the Bald Eagle, full extension!  Humorously, if I'm not already watching through the viewfinder, I sometimes find it hard to stop watching and get back behind the camera(and then I miss shots :( ).

Waiting for a Northern Harrier to do some passes from under a pine tree and had a little Junco stop by to say hi.  Unfortunately the Harrier never came as close as I had hoped.

Nice shots! What was the distance to the bird? with a 70-300 it had to be close. How did you manage that?

Thanks! This hawk made so much noise that I had to go and take pictures. He stayed in the garden for over an hour until I got too close :)

I guess he figured I was not going to harm him and flew off only after I got to within about 4 mt of him.

Beautiful colors. The background colors are perfect for the bird.  8)

The bokeh, colors and contrast are wonderful in this image!

Been enjoying all the great shots, but it's not as much fun having nothing to contribute.  However, today my fortunes changed a little.  I'll be seeing these guys until all my berries are gone - in two days maybe!  They're amazing eaters.
