Default Hawk on the roof

Yesterday morning I walked outside to pick up the newspaper from the driveway, and something to the side caught my eye. One of our local hawks was just setting there on my neighbors roof. I walked back inside and got my camera, and then got several shots before it decided to fly away.

E-3, 50-200mm

Great shots Steve, which lens did you use? Never mind, I see at the top of the photo which lens.

Thanks for the comments guys.
This year a pair of hawks have become pretty active around my house. They can be quite noisy and they often land in the trees behind the house. But I don't see any nest over there, so I'm not sure why they come to those trees several times a day. It doesn't seem to bother the cardinals in our back yard.

Great capture Steven, Sharp and light. Great pose as well. I like the light it it's eyes.

Thank you for your comments Fred, Harj, and Scouse.

As an FYI, I'm renaming that 3rd shot: "Slowly I turned....Step by step....inch by inch...." after that famous old comedy routine done by Abbot & Costello, the Three Stooges, and Lucille Ball, etc. After I looked at it, the pose fit that routine perfectly.
