p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Not a very productive morning


The weather in the Northeast this month hasn't exactly been the hot, hazy, lazy days of summer. Got out for a couple of hours yesterday morning and it was downright chilly. I headed over to the Great Swamp in hopes of finding a barred owl but got skunked on that. The only thing worth pointing my camera at was a nice redtail....by the time I saw it I had pulled up about 3 feet too far and had a small branch on the bottom that screwed up the perfectly clear view. So I took a few shots and then tried to back up a bit...not gonna happen...as soon as the beep beep started it took off into a very poor position. So here it is.

Some nice shots Eric, love the color in the eyes on #1 a juvenile I believe. I'm just thinking of this same shot again in the Fall with those leaves in the BG.

At least you were out with nature
Take care buddy

Maybe not ideal, but productive nonetheless. Good light and beautiful BG... love the wings-up in #2.

Yup, I am planning to put the hawk right back on that branch with the fall colors behind ....it was a glorious morning so I'm only complaining a wee bit

Thanks Nancy...as common as they are around here we don't often get so close...except for the juvis

You got that right Tom....its frustrating though not taking full advantage of the opportunity.

Thanks Kirk....they are beautiful raptors to be sure but are dismissed here because they are so common as "it's only a redtail".

Thanks Ken, those early mornings with the slight chill in the air are just wonderful

Thanks Ron...I don't get this type of opportunity too often and was kicking myself for not recognizing where to stop just a bit earlier...but cie la vie

I think they came out great, Eric. The foreground branch is not very noticeable.

Eric what are you going to do when it gets really chilly and cold? If i could find a place in the country where the weather is like this year round i would go in a heart beat.I believe that is a juvi and in #2-3 even he/she is a bit upset about that branch and seems to be trying to move it.Well done here.What type of car do you have that beeps in reverse ?

Eric, If I can get shots like this, I call it "my productive day". I love how the hawk hide in the shading area. Great shots.
