  2. Very nice. I have one of them that stops by my backyard several times
    as week. I have just been ready when he was ready. Maybe some day.

    Had some other kind of hawk show up about two weeks ago. Considerably
    larger. The small birds hid out for about ten days long after he stopped
    showing up. I was not even able to see the new one well enough to ID it.

    (Title "soaring" is wrong, he was flapping at that point. In soaring there is
    only an occasional 'flap', and bits of sculling)
    Soaring looks more like: http://www.pbase.com/bret/image/25167706 How much cropping here? They seem a wee bit soft (movement/wide open).

    The trouble with many of your shots, Bret, is that they are but TINY crops from a big
    frame of sky/background (do I guess correctly??).

    They look great on screen, but prints from these would leave much to be desired.

    Then again...perhaps you don't care to make prints...so have a ball!

    ----------------------------------

    Most of these are crops from the full frame, but with the 8MP 20D the
    crops are bigger.
    Also, even though many of these are crops many are also reduced in size
    for web viewing.
    And you'd be surprised what you can print if you know what you'e doing.
    I might not be able to get 20"x30" posters from these crops, but I can
    make very nice 5x7 or 8x10 prints from most of them.
