The first 2 shots shown here were taken at Santa Ana N.W.R., Hidalgo Co., Texas, in October, 2008. These shots were taken with a Canon EOS 1D Mark III and EF 300mm F/4 L IS lens and 2X extender and Canon 580 flash.
The Tawny Emperor shown here was at Santa Ana N.W.R., Hidalgo Co., Texas, in September, 2009. This shot was taken with a Canon EOS 1D Mark III and an EF 300mm F/4 L IS lens and 2X extender and 580 flash.
The next 3 shots of Tawny Emperor were taken in Austin, Travis Co., Texas, in October, 2009, with a Canon EOS 1D Mark III and an EF 300mm F/4 L IS lens and 2X extender and 580 flash. The shot at right and shown here shows a Tawny perched on a leaf. A few seconds later, a Hackberry Emperor landed right above the Tawny allowing a nice comparison of these similar species.
