  1. Nice Pic Chris I’m wondering what camera and lens your taking these great pics with? I’m a photographer as well and I appreciate your shots

    • Thanks, Mike. I just started shooting with a Canon t4i combined with a EF 28-300mm Lens. These are some of the first shots I have taken with that combo. I still have plenty of room to polish my skills, but so far I am very pleased with the results I’m getting from this system. These pictures were taken from over 100 yards away, and they are easily the best Red-tailed Hawk shots I have ever taken.
