Default Red Tail Hawk on the hunt.

Even at 420mm focal length, this was the best I could come up with.

You still did well to capture this fellow. I like #2 - you can see the muscles in the wings.

I think you made a very good effort (Much better than my attempts). I like #2. The hawk is such a majestic bird to watch in flight.

Here's another view of the same Hawk. I didn't think it was worth submitting until I looked at a crop of it.
