Screaming Hawks Captured with an Appropriate Lens!
Lens: Sigma APO 120-200 F4.5-5.6 DG HSM OS Camera: KP Photo Location: Searsmont, Maine ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/200s Aperture: F9 
Posted By: SSGGeezer, 07-16-2018, 07:21 PM

Some more shots of the Broad-winged Hawk I initially captured with my DA*50-135 Broad WInged hawk Screaming at Me - PentaxForums.com before returning home a few hours later and grabbing my Sigma 120-400 APO HSM OS and returning to see if the young raptors were still in the area. It turns out that there were several young birds in the area so I walked around tracking them by their screeches and kept moving closer and shooting images till they flew across the road to another tree. At least I got some exercise! And several more shots of them screaming, which made them easier to find!

Like he doubts my existence, or maybe my persistence! I kept following him/her back and forth across the road multiple times. Got some exercise!

Thanks Uncle V! They kept flying back and forth and to get to a position where they weren't back lit, I would have to walk past them so then they would fly away back to the other side of the road. Young raptors are like many teen boys, always screeching but run away from confrontation.
