Really outstanding nature capture, Hans - the motion is perfectly shown, but it is clear and sharp right where it needs to be: the head and talons. Technically outstanding shot. Would have loved to see your EXIF data and settings for this one. Thanks for posting it!

Default To ACL1978: A BIG Thanx Andrew!

This is the story: We (my wife and I) have a "birdtree" in our garden, there are many different small birds visting it for feeding. For five days three Goshawks have been around our garden to chase the birds. This shot is taken about 5 meters from the hawk trying to hit the tree. I was very lucky cos I just have a 18-105 zoomlens!
