Wonderful shots, both of the,. I have never seen one of these in the wild, but that's something I need to do something about.

Very nice Dylan. Good composition, focus just right, great color and excellent bokeh!

Thanks Eldar,
Never done wildlife before. That was my first time going to the zoo, to test the 300mm :)

I the had the ISO setting wrong, should be 100 not 1000. I'm glad I'm shooting with FF ;D

Expect to see my next question soon - BIGGER-LONGER WHITE ::)

Well, the Hawk came to my "studio" with his lunch. He called thrice. I picked up the camera and took 3 quick ones and noticed a crow was on the tree too. I then went to the terrace to take other pics but by the time I got there, they were both gone...

Anyway, here it is. 5D3, 100-400L+1.4x @400mm so 560mm, f/8, 1/1250 and ISO 5000, hand held.


Well done RPT. Very nice shot.

I agree. Now I am wondering how to save money for the 600mm! May be I'll hit on a bank. ;)
+1. I have to restrict my viewing of this thread, knowing my bank balance is in jeopardy, every time I view so many great images ;)
