p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Close Encounter of the Red Tail Kind - Image Heavy


I had one of those experiences that make this hobby so rewarding, when a Red Tail Hawk allowed me to come very close to him while he hunted.

This is a series of shots as I gradually moved closer, ending up about five feet away before he waited a while and then flew off.

Thanks for looking,
BOB

Nice series of this bird Bob and I agree with Polaris. The third from last is the best with nice creamy background. Well done!

Thank you, being that close it wasn't easy to watch the background.
