Coming back from town this afternoon, I looked to the right and saw this hawk sitting in a tree. She let me take several photos, unfortunately, a strong sun was behind her, creating a difficult lighting set



However, she tired of the game, giving me quite a take-off look



Shots taken with the K20d, Sigma 50-500mm with 1.4X TC, autofocus.

Paul

Nice, Paul. That second one of the takeoff is great.
