I was searching the Connecticut shoreline for opportunities to test my new lens and spotted a reddish figure perched in a patch of marshy woodlands in Chester, Connecticut. Without foliage, it stood out. I managed to get creep fairly close and shot through an opening in the branches. This adult Red-shouldered Hawk is one of the most colorful specimens I've ever seen.
