Excellent shot...looks like you might have been dinner!
nice backside view, cool shot.
That bird has attitude. Very good capture.
Bird shots don't get any better than this. Nice.
That is a beautiful shot of the hawk. We have alot of them here. I live next to a hay field. They are so beautiful
Thanks for all the nice comments! This is a photo that just happened to present itself unexpectedly. I was shooting a track meet at a local high school and as I was finishing up, I saw this hawk land in a tree right near the pole vault area. Good example of being in the right spot at the right time. I feel very fortunate to have been able to get this shot.
This is indeed a great opportunity and shot. Is there much cropping done? The EXIF says 200mm and you normally need some 500+ to shoot these birds.
There is only about a 20% crop. I was amazed at how close I was able to approach. I think its a female and was either buiding nest or guarding it.
