| p.1 #1 · The Poser ... Swainson's Hawk |
On Sunday, I was lucky enough to spend a couple of hours in the company of a wild juvenile Swainson's Hawk at the edge of a wheat field. It is actually the same bird I photographed the week prior.
This time, the bird stayed put for a llong period of time and I had the pleasure of observing a number of poses and behaviors.
Several hundred shots later, I am now left with the long process of going through everything.
Here are 3 that stand out so far.
Three different poses:
The grumpy look ....
The wing stretch ....
While preening ...
Nikon D300s + Nikkor 500mm f4 VR
Full sensor images - no crop applied.
Overcast, dark sky made for an interesting photo session. Natural soft tones, low contrast which is the way I like my images: of course this is not to everyone's liking.
Thank you for looking.
