Love the owl!
Thank you Karin, owl's should have mated by now here.
Maybe a nest nearby.
Outstanding, if that was in 1 day, I would call that a huge success! Gary
Thank you Gary. The owl and eagle were from yesterday. The
hawk from the day before. Here is one from this morning. I think
this is my local Cooper's hawk, in my backyard.
A very beautiful set, Howlynn!
Thank you Corky, I saw some adult eagles but they
were about 1/4 mile away hangling out at Lake Pueblo.

I have received 3 of the 5 pre orders I placed in July. None since December. Demand has FAR exceeded supply on this lens.
At least someone is getting some. NikonRumors had some information that
Nikon China (where the only plant is) is having problems getting good
quality glass for this lens. Also this lens is a totally hand built and they are
now trying to train more tech's to build these lens.
Since you are a NPS member your order has priority over non-NPS members, at
least this is how Adorama handles NPS orders. It think it is going to be a very
long wait for this lens if you are not a NPS member.
Excellent captures of this swift little critter!
Thank you Chuck, they are quite a challenge.
Great action shots...I like the diving head first shot about to hit the water.
Thank you M.T., quite a amazing bird, She went to the bottom where it was 2-3' deep
and came up with a crayfish. She went to her eating log and would rub the crayfish
against the log breaking off its pinchers then ate the body.
Nice action set Howlynn and for me a very difficult bird to photo!
Thank you Swamp-Cork. I found a good spot to stand by some bushes next
to some tree's by a pond with open calm clear water. This is where I had
observed the kingfisher hunting from and got these shots.
