I spotted this hawk while driving to the store yesterday. I yelled "Hawk!" as I hit the brakes and whipped a U turn at the school entrance, meanwhile my wifes looking at me like I lost my mind. We get back down the road to the spot and no hawk! "Where'd he go! He was right there!!" I look and look , but no hawk. So I make another U turn and head back down the road. We go about a 1/4 of a mile, "There he is !!". Brakes, U turn, " Yes he's still there!". So now I'm hanging out the window of the truck trying to get everything right, and start snapping. He didn't stay put very long, but I did manage to get these four that came out ok.
I be going back to that area to try to get some more of him this week. Here's a link to read more about Red Tailed Hawks.
I'm a career firefighter. But my real passion is the outdoors. I just recently got bit by the photography bug, and this is my first attempt at a blog. I'm not much of a writer, so please don't expect much more than pics with description. As this is a learning process for me, please feel free to critique my photo's and tell me whats good or bad about them. Rich.
