This is the third time I’ve seen a Red-shouldered Hawk and my best photo-op. This one has been hanging around a local park. Photos taken on two different days and three different spots. The flight shot isn’t the best quality, but it shows the red shoulders well. The rear view shows that the hawk is pretty well camouflaged–Lightroom ‘select subject’ couldn’t identify the bird.

You really caught some nice light on the first image. Detail, pose, and setting are all quite well done. The background works really well. Very nice to have this opportunity.
Love the gold against blue in the first and the camo job in the second. Nice takeoff captured in the third and I think the branches actually contribute more than detract. Hope you can get more opportunities.
The first one is my fav, Allen. Nicely done!
All gorgeous shots, particularly #1. Perhaps tone down the highlights a bit in #2?
All three shot tell a story. The first presents the best overall image quality. Nice work.
