Once again I was parked at Miner's Cove at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. I have been photographing lots of wildlife in this one spot here in July. Yesterday when I first arrived I saw a Barred Owl perched on a post near the road but it flew away when it saw my vehicle. The water in this area is slowly drying up and there is only a small amount left. I parked and waited but I didn't see anything so I left. At around 08:30 I came back to this area and as soon as I parked I saw a Hawk fly down to the ground. I saw that it caught a frog and ate it. I was photographing with my Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens. The Hawk was out to far to be able to get a good photo of it eating the frog so I added a Canon EF 1.4X III Telephoto Extender to the lens. While I was doing this the Hawk flew to a nearby tree. After several minutes it flew down to the ground and caught another frog to eat. It caught a total of three frogs before it left the area.
I was using my Canon EOS 7D Mark II with a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens and Canon EF 1.4X III Telephoto Extender. Since I had the telephoto extender on I was shooting at ƒ/8.0 (When using this extender on a f/5.6 lens you are limited to the center autofocus point only at an f/8 maximum aperture.) I had lots of sunlight so I was able to get a shutter speed of 1/2000 of a second at an 800 ISO. I had the exposure mode set at manual with auto ISO and evaluative metering. White Balance was set on auto. I was using single point, continuous autofocus.
