Alright, this guy (or gal) is driving me nuts.
This is the second season I have been trying to get decent pictures of this gorgeous Dark Morph Ferruginous Hawk and yesterday, yet again, it tortured me. I spotted it near Denver International Airport? down in a field, likely with a kill.
Quickly I snapped this (poor quality) image of it. Wanting more, this time I decided to be extra stealthy and put myself out of sight on the other side of a slight rise from it. Very carefully and quietly I crept up the hill and as I poked my head above, off it went, never even giving me a chance to snap another image.
I am starting to feel like Captain Ahab. Sigh.
