The Bulkington Buzzard

By johnnyjohhny  
This common Buzzard resides local to me and i have been watching it for weeks and it is my intention to tempt it down
with a little road kill whilst in my stealthy hide to photo it eating but i have not come across any road side nosh up to present
but i dont give up easily so smile your on candid camera is sure to come soon so fingers crossed.
took this with the Nikon 200-500mm a very sharp lens but i attached the Kenko N-AF 1.4x Teleplus Pro 300 converter so
effectively it was 700mm on the D500 but the 1.4 adaptor does give a lot of purple fringing in the high contrast areas and i know it can be removed in LR ect but it still left a little on the wings edges for you pixel peepers

A cracking shot JJ ..... a trip to KFC will do the trick..... you eat most of it.... then put the rest close to your hide.....

If the Buzzard doesn’t like KFC.... Try it with a Bic-Mac 🤓
