    White Tail

    First off, let me apologize to anyone who thought this might be about Deer.

    Secondly, Iíve said it before and Iíll say it again, Iím no bird guy! So near as I can tell this is a White Tail Hawk.

    Now I know it isnít a huge challenge shooting one of these sitting in a tree! I figured I was lucky just to see it in the top of a tree. Much less be able to get close enough to even see it in a camera lens (I was being sneaky but he knew where I was at all times).

    It took flight while I was watching it, but it naturally flew away from me and down behind all the branches in the tree it was in, so no love there. At least I was ready in case there was a chance!

    Beautiful birds for sure.

    For not being a bird guy, that is one nice looking bird.

    well presented Terry, couple more like this and you may consider being a bird guy. I call that guy a mature Red- shouldered Hawk. Very nice. They are kinda shy to people.

    Thanks guys!

    SoÖ Red Shouldered Hawk, eh?

    Allllllrighty then! Thank you for setting me straight here! No wonder Iím not a bird guy! Canít even figure out what I am shooting!

    By the way James, nice shot of your hawk. Thanks for sharing that.

    And while Iím at it Steve, all the deer in my neck of the woods hang out in just that! The woods! I donít get a nice pretty snow coated pastoral setting of Deer Nirvana!

    So Iíll trade you a hawk (in flight) for one of those sometime! And Iíll throw in a rodent in his talons!

    Hi Terry,
    A nice sharp picture that is well composed.

    I like the way it's sort of framed by the twigs.
    Well done and thanks for sharing.
    John
