Red-tailed Hawk

Hawk in Flight

Niagara, Ontario

1Ds M3, 300mm f2.8

Images taken yesterday with a friends camera, and lens. This bird was hunting along the highway, and made several attempts to secure dinner in the evening light, while fighting a high wind.

Thanks for looking!

This picture shows the white “pantaloons” that made me fall in love with this creature as it walked ahead of me in a just mown field. With each hop and the wind, the “pantaloons” flowed or bounced along. He stopped mid-field while standing on his prey, and let me get within six feet of him. I so wanted to reach out and touch him (knowing full well he’d attack me rather than take flight), but merely took his picture and left him to his dinner.

Thanks Linda, glad you enjoyed the images.
