The sunny and cool days are bringing out the hawks from their hiding places. Heading over for a short hike in the woods, I passed six different hawks including a pair of Red Tail Hawks.
Luckily I had the 100-400mm L lens in the car along with the Canon 7D. Quickly changing lenses and using the settings of Aperture priority f/7.1, Auto ISO, and daylight white balance, I was able to capture this bird in flight.
Although I’ve been suspecting for some time now that this lens focusing mechanism is on the fritz again, and surely none of my photos came out crisp. Also the sensor on the camera body has water spots on it.
So the whole kit and kaboodle will be sent off to Canon service tomorrow as there are exciting birding photo opportunities planned around the corner. Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
