That is a great example of how much nicer your outdoor shots can look with a polarizer.

nope. i'm 99% sure it's a Ferruginous Hawk. i thought white tailed but not with it's range. then rough-legged but the tail is too different. that leaves us with the Ferruginous Hawk.

Roy - thanks for the links. The last one had some pictures posted of a juvenile red tailed hawk that looked closer to mine than the Ferruginous Hawk (which looks like a prettier bird than our common Red-tailed). Why can't baby birds look just like the grownups, like guinea pigs?!

Nice series of shots Harriet. I understand the attraction to photographing dead trees. I have numerous frames of a few dead trees but I have never captured it the way I wanted to. Your first dirt biker shot is very good too. Thanks for posting them.

Really nice. I am fond of the hawk compilation and the moss.

Looks like a fun walk. Amazing what a difference the polarizer makes. I like the hawk composite.
