Nice shooting VP :!:


No camera wagon, but it appears you were using a large ladder. Both shots are almost parallel to the hawk, specially the in fight shot. Did you duck?

Great capture, tell us more about the shot.

Thanks for the comments, Bob and Jeff.

Actually I did duck when I first saw this one asit flew right above me. I turned towatch and it landed on a power pole a short distance away. I was in the process of getting in position to get a better view of a Great Horned Owl on a nest. That happened to be right across from where the hawk landed. It sat there for a couple of minutes and then took off, dropping low at almost eye level giving me a pretty close shot. One of the less skittish Red-tailed I have ran across.

Thanks , Don.The one inflight was fairly close and generally stayed in the area. The perched one was the first one I can remember that actually appeared curious enough to sit and look at me and kept turning it's head to watch me.
