Here are three of my favorite photos shot at the Raptor Center during the Catskills Fall Photographers Weekend that I led in the middle of October. I used my 100-400mm lens and was happy with its performance. The birds were so close that there were a few times I had to step back to achieve a focusing distance. Both the birds and handler were active so we still needed to be quick with the critical focus needed for this type of image. These were hand-held with image stabilization on.
