A mated pair hunting together. They usually hunt together, almost always in sight of each other. nice to see such strong family bonds...:-)

A close crop of the same image.

Nothing like going to the wilderness of Brooklyn, surrounded by almost three million people, Manhattan glittering in the distance, and seeing these guys....

Those are great shots, the only thing that bothers me a little is on the second one the blury grass in front. I think my favs are the first because you see a little reflection and the last one, I like those red eyes.

Isn't it funny how we arbitrarily call some birds; "birds of Prey?"

These guys are as much hunters as any bird that ever lived. The same for all their relatives...

You look at the last shot, and that's the face of a bird of prey...:-)

Thanks for the comments!

Thanks to all of you for the kind remarks. I would like to point out that the last shot is just a crop of the preceding shot....

Soooooo
