Default Swainson's Hawk .....

Hello,
Septembre is the best time to observe this Hawk species in my area. There are lots of them around as they are on there way to South America for the winter. By the middle of Septembre they will mostly be gone. At this time of year it is usually fairly easy to get close.
Here are a couple of portraits. The back of the bird is facing the camera.





The subject was perched on a fence and the background is a field.
These are full sensor images: no crop.

Nikon D300s + AFS Nikkor 500 mm F4 VR + 1.7x TC

Thank you for looking.
Gilles

Very nice set. Love the background and excellent detail. A little tight in the frame for my taste.
Well done.
