Finally Nailed that Buzzard! (img)
Oct 15, 2010

This is the first image I have posted on this forum.

Why? Just because I am overjoyed I finally got this "buzzard" closer than a 1/2 mile so I could capture him. I walk every day on a local mountain at lunch-time for exercise and there is one nest of red tail hawks and an infrequent visit from some turkey vultures. 2/3 the way up one buzzard cooperated and gave me a nice sweep with an uncontrolled airport in the "bokeh" background. Darn I'm glad I had my 1D4 with me (it was set on AI servo but single shot so I had to have a very fast finger-:).

1D4, 100-400L, CS5, w/smart sharpen, hand-held

I have some others if anyone is kind-enough to ask.....

Bob
