The Swainson's hawks have been back in the Central Valley of California for a couple of weeks now. Found one that wasn't bashful.

this is quite blurry. Are you sure you had the SR active? Does the lens focus correctly?

Sorry if its not up to snuff, I see what you mean around the head and beak areas. I didn't have the SR on as I generally turn it off when the shutter speed is over 1/300. The lens focuses fine, but it is a new acquisition, any mistakes originate with the operator and not the equipment.
