      Nice and sharp at the shorter focal lenght but on fool zoom it goes a bit soft but that is expected
      still sharp enough
      do you use the IS?

      This has been a great set, culminating in some beautiful photographs. Catching any big in flight is difficult. You did great. I love these.

      Made some birdshots myself some time ago, the difference with these pictures is the background. These are beautiful esp #2.

      Great job with the Harris Hawk in flight! It is so hard to track birds in flight. I get dizzy trying. :) What I love about these photos is that they are in a natural environment. All of your photos are stunning!
