Default Hawk and old camera

I'm clearly envious how everyone is strutting their new cameras. Here are two shots of a Cooper's hawk during a pidgeon meal in my mom's backyard in Kelowna. Pictures were taken with my 5 year old 3 megaschimxel Nikon through a telescope (both hand held). I shot about 30 and thanks to the hawk not moving too much a couple turned out ok.

A few times he looked right at me. Those red eyes are piercing.

I've done some moonshots through a telelscope with my Olympus Stylus 3.2MP camera, and they actually turn out pretty cool. Nice job RH
