It has been a number of months since I’ve shared photos on my blog. I have still been visiting local nature areas during the fall and early winter and have taken dozens of photos. Somehow, they just never made it to my blog. Life has been getting in the way!
Recently, I had an amazing experience at Lynde Shores in Whitby. I noticed a red-tailed hawk perched on a 3 foot high stump about 10 feet away. With my 100 – 400 mm lens, I actually had to back off to fit this magnificent creature into the frame. The hawk sat there, intent on some small prey in the grass and leaves, for at least 10 minutes. Snap, snap, snap……It was a grey day so the images are a bit “flat” but that was the closest that I have ever been to a hawk and it is unlikely that I will again. I hope you enjoy these shots of this hawk in his natural surroundings. Your comments would be appreciated….
I can now delete about 200 previous hawk photographs from my computer!
