red tail

hawk eye

on a walk to the lake last week
I spied this massive guy up in a tree above my head
the biggest red tailed hawk I’ve ever seen
he didn’t seem one bit intimidated by me
in fact, we had quite the stare down going on
until a guy and his barking dog came running down the path
and away he soared

magnificent!

  1. Thanks for sharing Mr. Hawk with us through your beautiful photographs. The third shot where his head is cocked down glowering at you with his marble like black eye fantastic!

  2. My favorite is the third shot – he seems quite aware of his surroundings. Even though he flew away, just seeing him soar must have been beautiful. Thank you for capturing his majesty and color.

    • Thank you Theresa. I wish I had been able to capture him soaring away but I was a little unnerved by the big dog that was running towards us!

  3. Oh! how utterly magnificent! Lucky, lucky you that he let you take such gorgeous shots! (bird envy showing here?)

  4. Great shots, all of them. I especially love the one where he is really glaring at you…and the one of him with a piece of something in his mouth is pretty good snapping…
