Red-Tailed Hawk and Spur-Throated Grasshopper
 
Red-Tailed Hawk. Birds of prey are my favorite but I don't get very many opportunities to get a shot of one. Got this one on the way back from picking up groceries.

Spur-Throated Grasshopper. No birds around and found this in my search for something to shoot.

Wonderful pictures. The grasshopper is sharp as a tack. How'd you manage it without the critter leaping away just as the shutter opened?

Thanks Barbara. It was a fairly cool day and I think he was enjoying the sun.

Congratulations on that rare bird of prey shot. And of course the grasshopper shot is wonderful too.
