Good catch of a great bird. I like that he's so fluffed out, it lets you see so much detail in the feathers, and I do love to see them on one foot with the other curled this way. Do you know what kind of hawk he is?

Nice capture Frank !!! Maybe crop a little tighter, up from the bottom?

From the barred orange and white markings I think it might instead be a red-shouldered hawk, but I'm no expert either (I just Giggle everything :lol: ). Regardless it is a lovely picture, well composed. It might benefit from an overall slightly tighter crop but I think it's fine as it is.

Psjunkie, very nice work. I'm on the crop side of this, but I'd also crop some from the right side of the image. This would place the subject at the upper 1/3 point and looking towards the center of the image. Really nice exposure and good tonality.

Nice image, Frank!
Chuck has it nailed as a red-shouldered hawk. That russet and heavily streaked chest and belly plumage, and the banded tail differentiate it from a red-tailed hawk.

I like your perspective and composition!

Dave
