Red-Shouldered Hawk

I captured shots of this Red-Shouldered Hawk at quite a distance
as it perched atop one of the tallest pine trees in our yard, back in March.

He (or She) stayed there a while, watching and waiting,
scanning the fields below for a possible catch.



No such luck.  Not that day.



With those beautiful wings spread, 
off he flew until he was out of sight...

  10. Very nice shots Susan. I especially like that last shot which shows the bird's wing span to good effect.

  11. As Phil above said, I like that last shot! A hawk in flight is best of all.
