      Judging from your macros, I'd have killed to see what you could have done with it.

      Is that a Golden Eagle? I have a few of those that have been flying over my house recently. I tried to take some pics, but my Sigma 70-300 is complete ****e. What lens are you using for your bird shots?

      there was a spotted fawn in my backyard yesterday, but of course my camera was all the way across the house and I didn't get to it in time.

      It's a red-tailed hawk. I used my Zukio 75mmf2 lens. Typically I shoot with a Zuiko 300mmf2.8.

      This is a shot I took of a golden eagle, a little too far away and a little too much crop. I had my 75mm on the camera and my 300mm on the ground.
