Hiding in the tree

I always see the red-shouldered hawks around our house. Normally they are on the power lines as I am driving down the road or flying overhead when I am outside.

The best shots you see are always those when you do not have your camera with you.

It is rare for me to see one this close and be able to get my camera and get a picture. I could not go on the back porch because he would have flown off so I shot this picture from the den window.

He was just hiding in the trees and resting after flying around looking for his next meal. Hawks are quite beautiful and graceful when they fly.

  1. We get hawks around our house all the time too. They are hard to capture. Get too close and they fly off. That’s a good shot of one. Still haven’t gotten a shot of my owl. He’s very shy.
