Default Local Red-Shouldered Hawk

Red Shouldered Hawks are common in the neighborhood. This one was sitting on my neighbors roof when I was recently walking by.

E-3 and 50-200mm

Wow, what a great shot, the addition of the insect make this picture more interesting.

The light catch on his eye is great.

Excellent shot, Steven. And once again it shows that unless you're trying to capture action that needs better AF, the E-X Olys are excellent cameras in the hands of an accomplished photographer.

Thanks, Ted. And I agree; the E-3 is an excellent photographic tool, and it can do more than I have mastered yet.

Thanks for those nice comments, Lordje.

The insect flying in the background is actually two mating Love Bugs. They are not native insects but somehow got introduced in Florida years ago and have multiplied. Whenever they are mating they "fly united." LOL.

The Red Shouldered is a beautiful hawk and will often allow one to get close while doing an inquisitive stare-down, even in the wild.

I recently photographed one perched on a tree limb about 20-25 feet above me, it was not interested in leaving its place but never wasn't looking at me..... I got all my wanted photos and moved on.

Your's is a nice image.... thanks for sharing it.
