    No idea Roger, but it sure is a nice capture with great focus and sharpness on the eye (viewed at 100%).

    Well done,

    PS, why do I only get darned sea gulls at the beach?

    Indeed, a wonderful shot, Roger. Very nice shot!

    (Not sure about your question, though...)

    Looks like a red tailed hawk, did it sound like one?

    Wow... Gorgeous... Stunning focus, detail and exposure.

    I think it is a red tail hawk, fairly sure but not a 100% sure.

    This a real beaut!

    The blue and white background really makes the bird stand out almost to a 3d effect.

    I would prefer it if there was a bit more space on the right of the frame into which the hawk is flying, but other than that it's a great shot
