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.

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 :)

Yup, they kept disappearing and reappearing behind some snow banks, which provided the OOF whitish frame. THank you so much for the encouraging comment!
