Bird of prey


We were back outdoors taking photos yesterday. The temperature had climbed to double digits (barely) so it was time. We saw this hawk at least three times, but on the third time, I was finally in a position to capture a decent photo.

I was driving east when I saw her fly across the road in front of me. This was a country road and luck for us, no cars in sight. I pulled forward and looked to the south and there she was .. about 50 feet from me. She turned her head to face me, then just slowly rotated it back toward the south. I snapped off about 10 pictures, then just watched her until she flew away. We didn’t stick around since it was evident she was hunting and I didn’t want to disturb this beautiful creature.
