Took this morning. It's called a Painted Bunting - I wonder why?.
Apparently it flies without actually using it's wings.
500mm. cropped.

I visited the English school of falconry recently, a great place to take your camera and a great variety of 'raptors'
(raptor = carnivorous birds that hunt and kill other animals)
This is a Kestral.

I really struggled to get any decent photo's during the flying displays, these 'suckers' are fast i.e kestrals, falcons, hawks. I was using a Sony Alpha, I tried AF-C but no way can that keep up. These birds were usually flying from a fixed point to their handler and I think the best way was to pre-focus on a point switch to MF, track the bird to the prefocused point and shoot ! still no great success really.
This is one of the slower birds and it's not very sharp.

Don't ask me why I have the static bird at f3.5 and the owl at f8 ?

Wow; dramatic stuff.

Very abbreviated session today, rained intermittently.
Did get a shot of this little night hawk, which I like.

Here is a Cooper's Hawk that was outside my front window.
He was looking around for a quick lunch.
I had to take the shot through my front double paned insulated window.
If I had gone out the door, he would be gone.

Sorry, this is already the best of the bunch :P

7D+beercan;1/2000@ISO200;210mm@f5

The catch

Some excellent work here, some average work here and a few misses here and there.

But a good topic.

Time to start a new one... this has got as long as we need.
