Lens: Fa *80-200 with HD TC Camera: K3 mk1 Photo Location: CT ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/350s Aperture: F6.3

Was out in the yard testing the Pentax HD Teleconverter with a FA 80-200 2.8 lens for a bit by the bird feeder and was buzzed by a young coopers hawk.. not sure who was more startled. He landed on a branch in some dense woods but I lucked out a bit on an openning.

Image is cropped a bit as the branches were too distracting.

Looks like your testing session worked out quite well.
