Master of His Domain
I finally got an opportunity to get a snapshot of one of the red shouldered hawks that calls our neighborhood home. They have had a nest, about 75 yards from the house, for nearly three years. It is difficult to get to and almost impossible to photograph. Ocassionally, one will perch in the top of a dead tree, about the same distance from our abode. This is about as close as I can get without actually setting up in advance and waiting for him/her to come to the branch. I love these creatures. I truly find them fascinating. Now, If I can just get him/her to perch on a branch with an unobstructed view, I'll be very happy.
