Default Red-shouldered Hawk

Ran across a Red-shouldered Hawk yesterday, on a golf course in Florida. Birds don't seem to mind the cart getting close but the minute you get out they are gone. Pentax Kr, DAL 55-300. In Michigan I couldn't get within 50 yds of one. It's like golfers are just an annoyance to be ignored, kind of neat.

Ride around in a golf cart and shoot birds, life is good. Nice shots BTW.

Good captures, well done.

(it is true that down here in Florida there are a lot of bird species that are used to being relatively close distance to humans. It really helps us photographers get a closer shot.)
