Default A Redtail and the Moon

Was out Saturday at the favorite pond and while watching the waiting for ducks to do something more than just paddle around, a Red Tailed Hawk came over and circled the pond several times...It was about 3pm and I noticed the moon had already come up so the idea of the hawk and the moon hit me...He came around again and I got this shot...
Interesting and different.....

Nice shot, yesterday I was at the river taking pictures and had the same Idea to get a duck or goose flying by the moon. I didn't ever work out for me though. Got the moon by itself though.
