In the further pursuit of better photographs of my friend the Red Tailed Hawk.
I spotted my friend in the Tulip Popular Tree down the road about a 1/4 mile away and decided to again try to get some better photo's of him.
I grabbed the camera with the 70-300VR lens with the 2X adapter and headed down the road to a church parking lot just across the road from the tree..I pulled in there in my truck and parked parallel to the tree and rolled down the window and stuck the camera out the partly open window..resting the log lens on the window edge and started to photograph my elusive friend.
I was still at some distance from the tree across the road...I would say maybe about 1500 ft. away ...so the long lens was a big help in capturing some of the awesome beauty of my friend.
