Hej Micke!
Vilken fin bild!
That Canon 2.8 300 mm is a great lens and you used it well with the 2x converter to capture this juvenile bivråk. Excellent sharpness and BG in a great composition.
Snyggt jobbat!

Hi Mikael

Nice to see you back here, my old friend! I hope all is well with you and i'm pleased to see you're still taking your great shots!
This is a stunning capture of this buzzard! The light here is excellent - smooth and diffused, saturating all the tones and colors very well.
The focus and DOF are spot-on and make the buzzard stand out impeccably, while that striking eye attracts all the attention in the world :)
Wonderful work!

Bravo and TFS
