shot just out of Mannum SA, driving along we came across a group of 6 or 7 hawks drifting on a slight gully breeze “stalking” parts of a rabbit – and fighting off the crows………….

As I write this I can feel Steve Chapple cringe…………..

Thanks to Steve for driving… and the use of his 400mm lens to get a great collection for the portfolio……………. and sorry they all disappeared when i handed back the lens!!

Canon 400D with stolen sigma 400mm lens (thanks Steve)

    beautiful Dave – nice detail and like the vignetting effect – and sometimes it pays to be step ahead of Steve…maybe he got some shots of a dead rabbit or a few magnificent

  • Learnt a long time ago – with Steve you HAVE to keep him busy – (or steal his equipment) – so that he cant show you up – he always seems to find a way! still – dont mind coming in second to the teacher – keeps them on their toes!

    Nice crisp detail and lighting on this one. And no Jim…no photos of rabbits or anything else worthy of matching this shot.

    Nice shot Dave, great detail mate, often see these guys around here but it’s not easy to predict where they will fly into the shot most of the time, good work :-)
