Cooper's Hawk

This is another favorite, primarily because I was able to get a decent shot under fairly dark conditions, trying to balance ambient light and flash. As indicated in the shooting parameters, this shot was taken at 1/6 second, and I was amazed to be able to get decent quality shooting this slow. Canon 100-400 at 220 mm, ISO 200, f/5.6, 1/6 second, aperture priority, EV +1/3, 550EX with Flash EV -2/3, tripod used.
