    Nick,

    Great owl!

    Mark,

    The eagles were so far away that you didn't have much of a shot. Nice effort though!

    Dave

    Tell us a little bit about this shot! Were you in a blind for this? What lens were you using? Crop any? This is one of the better Red-shouldered Hawk pictures that I have ever seen. Very natural looking (woodsy background), but with a narrow enough depth of field that the hawk really pops!

    On another note, I showed this picture to one of my friends who is a bird enthusiast and he immediately said, "looks like he was in S. Florida based on the vegetation."

    Finally captured a bird shot...

    Ring-billed Gull during migration. They were eating some leftovers in the middle of the road. This one safely dodged a vehicle.

    Thanks!

    Your friend is absolutely correct. This is in south Florida, which in itself makes getting close shots to wildlife like this easier than most other places.


    I got this shot while driving a back road looking for wildlife. This hawk came and landed on a tree limb overhanging the edge of the road. So I just had to stop my car and get out.

    shot with a 50d and 100-400mm lens @400mm 1/160th, f5.6 iso 500. Very minor crop and basic adjustments in post.
