Bergamot and broad-wingeds

10 posts in this topic

At the same time the wonderful wild bergamot are blooming, the broad-winged hawks have begun to mass and migrate.

A short trip up the Echo Trail brought some both.

All with the Canon 30D at iso400

Nice work Steve. 1st one is my favorite.

Went out fishing last week with an acquaintance of yours. Tom Sawvell of Rochester says to say Hi.

Thanks, guys. Gorgeous as they are, and raptors are my favorite group, birds are DARN dirty creatures. gringrin

Sure wish it would have landed on a tree branch instead of a power line, but I gave up trying to control nature a long time ago. winkwink

The photographer that I was with and I were able to get close to three broad-wingeds this morning. Only one landed on a tree, and she was able to capture that bird while I was not. FWIW, I do like all that garbage in the air around the bird.

Nice ones as usual Steve. I have to say I really like the perspective on the first.

Nice shots, I like those feathers shaking in the last shot, they really stand out against that dark background!

I like the last shot best, you have a good view of the raptors eye. I also like Raptors, Steve.
