Thermals

In our suburban neighborhood it’s usually about mid-day I noticed the red tail hawks soaring the thermals. To get a decent photo I need a blue sky and the sun behind me. Shooting totally manual with the 2x converter has me shooting at ISO 400, 1/650 sec. at f4.5 . Last year I caught it on the Solstice which is my favorite day of the year.
