You did a super job on the hawk on top of that tree. With the blues behind it, made it even better.

SandyCarlson said...

A spectacular view of this regal fellow. So beautiful.

Barb said...

The enlarged photo is spectacular. Do you know what is hanging from the tree? I'm wondering if it's the reason the tree is dead?

Regina said...

Lovely sky.

Beautiful photograph of the Hawk..I am a Hawk lover here..have a beautiful Red Tail Hawk who is a long time friend to me..but the last few years he has become quite shy do to something scaring him or someone injuring him in some way..he has now become Very Camera shy...but I did manage to get some good shots of him with my newest lens 70-300 with VR.
Wonderful capture with a great sky as a background...well done!!!.

Beautiful composition with that corner of blue next to the puffy cloud and also the lone hawk on the stark tree.

Louise said...

I'm sure the sky could not have been more beautiful for that picture.

PG said...

hawks are so majestic. Bald eagles are solid too, but i wouldn't have been miffed if the the founding fathers had picked a hawk for the national bird!

Arija said...
