Oops! I just realized that these shots were taken just before I received my D300. These are from my D80. Sorry about that. :?

Here are a couple of shots of a very young Red-tailed Hawk.

Nice shots Steve. I like the thoughtful look of the Hawk as it's walking in #4. Probably going over the days hunt and all the missed delicious mice... "I knew I shoulda banked left when I pulled that sweet airbrake maneuver" Darn!

Really fantastic shots, Steve. You took better shots of a hawk in the wild than I did a couple of weeks ago with the advantage of having them on handheld perches from ten feet away. (at a Raptor Education program). I can't even say which one I like best because they're all great.

I thank each and every one of you for your nice comments.
Paul, I was very lucky that this juvenal was not very wary of our close proximity and the nice morning light didn't hurt either.
Don, I got the feeling she was practicing her stomping technique for field mice :lol:

Thanks again all,
Steve
