Default Warning! - Hawks Mating

Today in Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge I observed two Hawks refurbishing the nest they used last year. I also observed them mating. Looks like they are planning to use the same location they successfully raised two chicks last year.

K5, DA* 300mm lens

The K5 and DA*300 seem to be such an outstanding combination in your hands. Well done.

No "warning" should be necessary - this is great documentation of "doing what comes naturally!" Nicely done!
