Default Rough Legged Hawk

I couldn't believe how close this one let me get, so I just kept shooting as it was very cold... 8* I also have one of it spreading its wings but using the shutter release it just didn't turn out as clean as these.

Wow, what beautiful shots! What a beautiful bird... Wonderful opportunity! My compliments! Would love to see the ones with his wings spread, even if less than perfect??

Wes here you go, the details on this one is less than what I really wanted. It was so quick that I had to just hit the shutter release, which probably accounted for some movement.

Thank you, I really wish this last one had truned out clear and crisp. Here are 3 that I cropped to give you a much better look at the hawk. I wish I could do an edit on the title, as this is a Rough Legged Hawk rather than a Red Tailed Hawk I had since found out.

Beautiful bird and awesome shots. The raptor almost looks like our Cooper's hawk, but a juvenile at best. If you are not a pro, then I wouldn't expect better pics than what you have here. I am NOT a pro, and I have to do a Santa shoot today........lol J4c
