Spotting for elk = Hawk

On my back from spotting for elk I found this character on a pole then he flew to a tree. I found him or her around 11 am. I used my RDS which is a good thing because he didn't stay any one place very long.

Very nice series, huge the last one, although it would have benefitted of atouch of luminosity in the shadowy face.

Yes we do have mountain lions in our area. I have seen a few of them but I haven't tried to get any photos yet. I am planning to try to get some photos in January or February. It will be much easier when I have snow on the ground so I can track them to find out where they are living and drinking. I will be using a varmit call once I get into position not my normal crow call.

Thank you Mr. Jerry. One of these days you will get out here and we can work on getting you some of our wildlife to take home.
