    In many cases expensive gear don't matter too much.....it's how you use it.... and in this case you did it well!

    I don't think I have posted anything in a while. Had the winter blues and frankly a little depressed about my photo opportunities. Here is one I grabbed the other day. I had the 300mm attached to my XTi, which isn't the best at tracking or I could have taken an awesome shot of this little guy catching a rabbit. It must have been his first year because he was pretty small compared to the others I have seen. I had to crop pretty good and it doesn't quite hold up as well as the 7D.

    Jayson....nice Cooper's Hawk. I see these fairly often, even in the woods behind my house, but I have yet to get a good shot of one.

    Here's a bluebird from today - they are starting to look for nests. 5DMKIII, 600 II + 1.4XIII, ISO 1000, f8, 1/400, better beamer + 600EX flash -1 and 2/3 stops fill flash. I'm hoping a pair will adopt my front yard bird box. I've seen some great in flight shots when they are landing on their nesting site. Would be cool to try.

    Awesome sharpness and detail. Good technique.

    Great composition to isolate the subject Joel - perfect pose and nice catchlight on the eye. I love titmice. I note that you shot this at f8 with the 500 f4 - going for more sharpness and/or a little more DOF? I find the 600II + 1.4XIII is sharp at f5.6 or f8, but I tend to try to use the latter in the hope that a little more of the subject will be in focus - even though I know the DOF is pretty shallow with either especially when the subject is close.
