Red Tailed Hawk

Hawk quest (and a few other critters)

My son and I headed out this morning for a quick photo tour of some of our usual haunts.  This included the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge and the surrounding area.

At the Arsenal it was pretty much standard fare with the bison being the most notable.  Just to the north we came across a hawk that was kind enough to give us a few very nice flybys.

Watchful hawk

January 18, 2013 – Watchful hawk.  Hawks tend to be very elusive to capture in photos – at least they are for me.  It seems like they have a knack for knowing when I am nearby and do their best to avoid me. 😉

This particular one was very cooperative and sat for quite a while in a tree at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal.  The tree branches are busy but the bright, Colorado blue sky behind helps to make it a nice image.

Order a print of this image.

What are you looking at?

I generally don’t have too much luck photographing hawks as they are quite skittish and seem to delight in running from me at about the time I get close enough to take a picture.  This particular hawk along the South Platte River was not different although he did give me a dirty look before taking off again.
