Patience pays off

Mr Red Tail Hawk in tree

Taking off from tree.."I have had enough of this guy with the camera"

Success at last !!!! Oh I am so excited, being determined to get a better shot of the Hawk this morning, I walked down the road a bit and crossed over the road into the field that the tree sits at the end of...and ever so softly and quietly walked over towards the tree at an angle, all the time keeping an eye on the Hawk, getting closer and closer until I reached a spot directly in front of him just about 500 ft. away and started shooting with the 55-300 lens on my Nikon.

I happily snapped away for several shots until he started getting restless and decided to leave me standing there with mouth wide open and a big smile on my face at his wondrous beauty.

I got one good shot of his leaving the tree that I am putting in this post also. I did get several shots of his parting but I am saving them for another time.

If you click on the photographs it will enlarge them to the full size for a much better viewing.

Enjoy my friend and his beauty, the Red Tailed Hawk.
