Hawk or eagle? and spring!
Mar 20, 2012

Well, I got my first picture of a hawk (i think). Of all the rural places I have been I've yet to have the right lens at the right time, or didn't have enough reach with 200mm. Today I went outside my apartment to get some pictures of all the flowers that are blooming because of this amazing weather we're having. While I was taking the pics a man approached me and told me there was a hawk eating something in a tree 5 houses down, so I hurried over...Luckily I had my 200mm f4 smc m on the camera, it really was the right place at the right time, after taking a few pics, it flew away. This pic is about a 60% crop I believe, the IQ isn't the greatest..the lens has some haze, but I still love how it renders closer images and portraits, it still has lovely colour IMHO and for $15 I can't complain.
