Immature Cooper's Hawk

Uploaded: October 24, 2007 12:58:39


ISO 800, f/8, 1/125 sec, Canon 400mm DO IS lens + 1.4X extender, handheld. This young of the year bird has been hanging around my bird feeders at work learning how to hunt. Or rather, trying to learn how to hunt - he has been pretty inept so far. With winter coming on soon, he has only a short time to become proficient!

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
