A Cedar Waxwing.

Lovely. Nicely done.

+1 - great color on the berries. Hope we see a few in NC this year - they migrate through.

Thank you, very much!

Here is another favorite, and it is actually a screen capture from video taken with a C100 that was using a spotting scope as a lens.  It is a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk on the Cornell University campus.

I have seen them several times, but have never managed to get a nice picture like yours....

Nice shot, that looks like one demanding baby! Feed me feed me now!

Cheers Graham.

Thanks Graham. I happen to press the camera button (at 6fps) and got the whole sequence. But it only took about 5-6 frames for the bug to be an ex-bug ;)

It helped me having my house mate act as a spotter, as I was glued to the viewfinder. My house mate would tell me when a parent was approaching, so I could prepare to hold the button down. I got a lot of shots this afternoon :)
