Excellent portrait - nice clear eye, good feather detail, and good background.

What an incredible shot. I guess you must like that 1.4 converter. It really brings you up close and personal with your subject.

WOW!! very nice.

many thanks Karen for the nice comments, always appreciated :) Yes, am afraid the hawk does come to our yard to hunt, as there are loads of birds here. I think he has something wrong with one foot, so I forgive him. He seems to be missing one claw and has a lump on his foot, have noticed from the closeup pics.

Beautiful portrait with nice sharp detail and that bright yellow eye. Hope it isn't hunting birds in your yard.

thanks for the nice praise, Alan, that's appreciated. Am quite happy with that one, think it's one of the sharpest I've got so far :) It was on manual focus too, as had the teleconverter on there, - so it's a bit "iffy" at times :) with my eyesight.

Wonderful close photo.. That eye really draws your attention. Then all of his feathers. Great Photo!

thanks for the nice comments Mary. He was obliging and sat there for several minutes. I notice (in some of my captures from yesterday) he's got a lump on one foot and looks like one claw might be missing and a bit deformed, so am wondering if this is why he favours the gardens rather than the open fields.

Beautiful capture and nice clear detail.
