RTH Joins Me For Lunch

I had to go to Colorado on family business and when I travel I don't very often stop at a restaurant during the day time I grab something when I stop for gas and then find me a county road to turn off on for lunch. About 1 mile down a county road I found a pull off by a Cottonwood tree and got out my Breakfast Burrito and a cup of coffee. I hadn't finished 1/2 of the burrito when a RTH showed up.

Set down the Burrito & coffee grabbed the cameras and got a few photos.

I am using two cameras for my Spot & Stalk Photos.

Pentax K10D / Sigma 10-20 lens

Canon Mark3 / 500 mm lens

Here is the Cottonwood tree with the RTH.



With a close up.



A little closer look.





He left and was flying across a couple of fields then decided to come back by me and check me out.

Roger, you done it again, well done. You must have great eyesight to spot a bird in a tree from that distance. Do like the first one and the last one, they came out great.

Calicajun actually this time I got lucky I saw movement and it was the Red Tail landing in the cottonwood. Thanks for the nice comment and for taking the time to look.
