Hawk with a kill

Guy was busy chowing down and allowed several shots. Hand held at roughly 100 yards.

Your shots are incredible. Super clarity, and at such distances.

Very sharp for hand-held at 100 yards!

Thanks. For sure at least eighty but also possible 100 hard to tell.
That new Sigma DG lens is great. Hoping to buy one for my Nikon soon. Fast focusing and if you use the tripod mount like a pistol grip and tuck your elbow into your chest as a brace getting a usable shot shooting rapid fire is defiantly not out of the question.
Cutting grass today what lands near me? A Scarlet Taninger something I haven't seen here in years. Then to add insult to injury I watched two birds I believe to have been woodcock doing their ariel dance and mating....##@*! No camera of course.
