Photo of the Day.............Red Tailed Hawk

I took this in the back yard on a very cold January day this year.  As I was revisiting these shots I started to wonder what he was thinking while I was down below taking his picture.  I think he was saying.  I have super sharp vision.  I can turn my head 180 degrees and see all around me.  I have a sharp beak and sharp talons, and I can FLY.  What can you do puny human?   I am so jealous.    


  1. Much as I love our backyard in the warm seasons, full of flowers and foliage and songbirds, I know the raptors are there, but hidden. The winter garden leaves them little cover. Our redtailed and red-shouldered hawks are the stars when the garden is bare.

  2. That is a beautiful picture. Amazing that you were able to get that shot!
