RedTail with Dinner

Caught this hawk on the rise after seizing a gopher in the shadow of the GG Bridge while running toward the cliff with my 100-400mm cocked and fired multiple shots on my old 60D to catch this shot.  Very exciting to successfully chase one down finally.

Focus could have been better, but I wasn't really equipped for birds.

5D3, 100/2.8 Macro, 1/8000s @ f/2.8
I have a new appreciation for hummingbird shots.  Didn't realize just how small they are having not seen one in person before.  Nicely done especially with a 100mm lens.

Too much time, too little gear...scratch that, reverse it.

Just caught this guy out of the corner of my eye.  Wasn't prepared for BIF at that moment.  Some motion blur but not too bad.

Nice. Yah they're remarkable creatures. Perhaps because of my background (aerospace), I find their unique abilities (flying backwards or even inverted) fascinating.

Backlit Snowy Egret

I hadn't been out to Cherry Creek, my regular birding haunt, for months. I haven't really birded since last year...just been too cold until recently, and I've been so sick of cold. I missed part of the migration, but now the summer birds are arriving. That includes the egrets and the ibises. While photographing shorebirds, a few groups of both flew by, but sadly I was on the wrong side of the birds relative to the sun to get any good shots. This is the only one that came out decently well, although I quite like the backlit wings.
