Let's see, rain, thunder storms, more rain over night and this morning, now sprinkles and...
Oh, yeah the hawk back off and on.
The crows and hummers more or less ignore him, but the other birds disappear and so do the squirrels. I have seen the hawk buzz the yard, on the wires, on the play house, on the bird bath and ground near it, on the shepherd's crook over a nectar feeder etc.
Light is sort of cloudy almost bright (ISO keeps going up and down) so I had to use PP to get the colors up and I think I will have to fine tune the new 150-600 to my 5DIV, focus is "almost". And I should get out the tripod, SS getting too slow for hand holding.
