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.

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

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
