Here is a favorite of mine.  It is a juvenile Red-tailed Hawk, photographed with a Canon 7D, a Sigma 50-500mm OS lens, a Sigma 2x teleconverter, and a Sigma 1.4x teleconverter.  (Yeah.  I know.  I probably shouldn't be stacking teleconverters.)  This photo is as I took it, without any processing.

Just pulled up the thread and wow - incredible shots by everyone!  We really have a great bunch of bird photographers on CR and each time I click on this thread I'm amazed by what I see.  I went to my usual haunt this weekend and once again spied some black-crowned night herons - still not as tame as 'Harry', but these two let me approach a bit closer:





Love the composition on the 2nd shot!

Andy_Hodapp,

It must be exciting to have the opportunity.  I rarely see an eagle and then only golden.  Bet you were wishing you had a longer lens or could get closer!

Jack

Right now in the process of choosing a longer lens.  Tamron 150-600mm?  I did try and get closer but he flew away, but not before I got a shot of him flying!!!!

Canon 5D MKII, Canon 17-40mm F/4L, Canon 50mm 1.8 II, Helios 44M-4 58mm F/2, Sigma 105mm EX DG Macro F/2.8, Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD, Canon 200mm F/2.8L, Yongnuo YN-560 II, S100 with underwater housing

Andy_Hodapp, so majestic even though it's small!  Bet you're following AlanF's evaluation on the Tammy.  If I didn't have my 300 X2 I have no doubt that's what I'd get.

I'm still stuck on my deck resorting to bribry.

Nice shot.  If that's f/16 and the wings are that soft, you must have been fairly close, 20 feet or less?

CarlTN, I was a lot closer than 20'! ;)  Remember my friends the chickadees love me so they pose.

Actually Downy was pretty cooperative too.  Sure would like some variety.  Today Sammy Jay and Maggie Magpie showed up - for 1/10 second!  They don't like me for sure.

Very nice!  None of them like me, but I hate chickadees, as I've told you before.  They are common folk...hahah.
