    Never saw this one coming. Was wading back to shore in knee-deep water (they were doing a water release from the dam and I had been in the middle of the river). I was concentrating on my footing, saw something out of the corner of my eye and whipped the camera up instinctively. Just lucky that the settings were close enough to get a capture. Wish I'd had more shutter speed, but definitely can't complain overall.

    I think they are great...at least you had enough shutter speed to get some detail. :biggrin: Good job!

    Thanks everybody. Anyone want to venture an ID? Red-shouldered?

    Yup, definitely looks like a Red Shoulder hawk to me.
