Ivins, Utah. Oct. 26, 2013. This guy has been taking a toll on our House Sparrows lately. The shot was taken at sunset using a flash. It didn’t seem to bother him at all. He just sat there behind the post and finished the whole bird and then flew away. Sony A77 with a Sony 70/400 zoom at 200. Hand-held with flash, 1/250 F7.1 ISO 320.
