A hawk family lives around my house and he often comes to the trees in and around the garden. Yesterday he was  eating a garden lizard and screaming at the top of his lungs. I guess he thought that it was tasty! Take a look. Personally, I'd pass ;)

Shot with 5D3 firmware 1.2.3 with Magic Lantern http://www.magiclantern.fm/. I have been shooting with Dual ISO turned on and it gives me good results! Take a look at the thread http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7139.0 that describes the feature, and the thread http://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=7402.0 where you can see pictures taken with dual ISO.

The first one was shot with a 100-200L @200mm, ISO 100/1600, F/8, 1/250
The second one was shot with a 100-400L @400mm with a 1.4x so @560mm, ISO 400/6400, F/8, 1/200
I left the exif on so you can see but imgur.com kills it :(.

I was shooting against the light. The sun is a little to the left of the bird.

Well, I wondered if daddy might eventually show up and today he did.  However, he is very skitish and took off before I could get my 300 through the hole in the blind as seen in the shot of the Downy from the opposite direction below the deck.

Then, and don't ask me why I could never attract one, a Bluejay visited.  My first decent shot of one.  This time the lense was on the tripod just waiting for him! ;)

Now, in my little pond a stones throw from my house a male Bufflehead patiently waits for his mate to show up with their young.  He won't let me get close so this is a pretty heavy crop of 300 X2.

I took these photos today June 8th, 2014 under my deck in my backyard. I was using my Canon 7D with a 300 MM f4 lens and a 1.4x tele convertor as well. Images were lighted with my 600EX wirelessly as I had it outside on a table at the same height as the nest was. I had to shoot from inside my back door in the cellar so that the mother would show up to feed them all. Enjoy them as I had a blast trying to get these shoots.

Thanks Click and rpt.  Bob, wonderful to see the hungry mouths and the faithful mom!

Here's another of Mama Pileated that's nice enough to post large - gives a better impression of just what these guys are like!
