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...

Thanks for that perspective - very nice.

This little chap was one of my first really good shots with my Sigma 150-500mm, I’ve only been at it for a little over 1 year but I’m happy with my progress considering that I can rarely find the time to get out here in Dubai, I’m planning a morning outing this weekend as the cooler months have arrived, if I could create shots half as stunning as some of the images in this thread I would be a very happy man, grateful for any critique.  It’s a Grey Francolin, shot at ISO 200, f5.6, 300th on a 550D.
Thanks.

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.
Beautiful Steven!

Those are simply fantastic! I like #'s 1 and 3 the best.

Thank you Sir!  I didn't care for the building in the distance behind him but it's not too noticeable I suppose!  Thank you again!
