Another try...

Behind my home is one in a series of parks on the Virginia side of the Potomac. The main reason I purchased the OM 300 f4.5 was for occasional bird & wildlife photography.

Well, today, one of those occasions happened. Some good news and some bad news.

Good news is that there was enough light for a good exposure, colors look pretty good, and - to my eyes - significant chroma is absent.

Bad news is that this bird (hawk?) still required significant cropping, and that I am terrible at focusing this lens - I hope practice will help

1/500 f8 ISO 250. PP - Only a diagonal graduated filter to brighten exposure by .5 stops
