Tanzania Bird ID Please (55-300 shot)
Oct 8, 2012

HI!

I was in Tanzania last April and was happy that I brought my 500VR.

My photo "newbie" brother had just bought his first DSLR (D5100), and his longest lens was a 55-300VR. We were driving around, and spotted this bird just ready to take off. Before I could swing my 500VR into place, my brother swung his easier/quicker to handle D5100/55-300VR zoom around and took this:

Nikon D5100 ,AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR
1/1600s f/6.3 at 195.0mm iso400

I'm not sure which type of raptor this is.

Anybody know?

Thank!

RB
