A shot taken of a hawk as I was driving down country roads. The bird was perched on a pile of dead fall with one branch peeking out from the pile. I enjoyed this experience as the light was just the way I liked it!



Spreading out



Checking me out



Cheers!

Number three especially has a real 3D feel to it. Fantastic.

Thanks Bob and Steve, this was right after a quick heavy rain which sometimes brings about some really interesting lighting if the sun peeks out. Cheers!

Great shots Norm. I really like the background - creamy gray blue clouds with the right light angle. It came together here just right!...cheers...Don

Nice captures, Norm. We don't see Swainson's Hawks much in California outside of the Central Valley and Carizzo Plain except in migration.

Excellent shots Norm. The third is exceptional. It's nice to see them on a branch for a change. I usually get them on the fence posts.
