3 week old Red Tail in the nest



I have been watching this nest for weeks; it is hard to get a good shot. There are several other trees in the way and very high up.



Thanks for looking
Jeff

Nice shot. Tough to shot through all those leaves and branches.

Outstanding shot. Hard enough to get these guys as adults, much less before they leave the nest.

That's a good shot, Jeff. You threaded the needle on that one.

VP your right about threading a needle.
Then add the wind swaying the tree back and froth.


Timing is everything + luck



Thanks for looking
