Went looking for Raptors....

A few days back I was shooting at one of my local haunts and saw 7 different types of Raptors but almost all were at distance! Yesterday I decided to bite the bullet and hike through the jungle to get closer (very hot timings for these Raptors ) .

I hid myself under some trees ,thank the gods for the shade . Sod's law, only a Spotted Eagle and Marsh Harrier showed up on the other side of the lake where I normally shoot!!! A small Shirkra did show up at extreme distance.

The Eagle and Harrier did have a dispute about territory...

Not great shots at distance, just some fun All with the D300s,300 2.8vrI w/tc1.7 handheld.

Landing on a tree top at about 40 mtrs

Huge crop at about 70 mtrs

Just some behavioral shots
