A new fledgling, I don't think any more than a few days ago. This one was on the ground when I first saw it early this morning, it flew into a Pine Tree a short distance away, I got lucky in the sense it flew right back out and towards me, unlucky even though the sun had just risen it was still somewhat dark in this little valley, high iso, recovery is better than I expected. Did basic Lightroom adjustments but spent more time than usual and then a light de-noise application in Topaz.
iso 18000, 410 mm, f 5.6, 1/2500
Yea, I know hard for me to believe to
