[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello friends, from the same falconry demonstration
of last week, this is the Harris's Hawk that I already
posted a closer photo posed in ground.

With this Harris's Hawk I had to stay more far
than the Saker Falcon, so the photo it is from
more far, it is not an extraordinary photo,
but for me it is the 80th species of bird
that I am photographing in-flight.

1/125s f/7.1 ISO1600 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).
The Saker Falcon was before noon and the
Harris's Hawk in the afternoon and that
moment the light was not so good.


« Cooperatively hunting groups of Harris's Hawks
are more successful at capturing prey than individuals
hunting alone. Groups of five hawks are the most successful. »

Hello Asbed,

You already told us about distance, so I don't need to remind you again the same thing. I like the way you have given importance to your own work which is 80th Flying Bird species and to me it's a big achievement at the end of the day.
Nice color of the Harris's Hawk.....I can see its upper and lower portion too. I prefer such natural habitat Photograph.
Thanks for sharing,
Best regards and have a nice Sunday tomorrow,

hello Asbed
même si l'oiseau est un peu loin, on peut quand même bien distinguer les couleurs et les détails contrastant avec le fond un peu flou, ce qui donne une notion de vitesse,
passe un bon WE

Hi Asbed,a bit distant but very sharp despite the fast mouvement,the background is trembled and a bit noised but i know how isn't easy a pic like that...ehehhe...have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

Despite the distance. quite a clear image of the hawk. Its colors seem very natural and clear, which is quite amazing given the small space it occupies against the totally different background lighting.
