Howard and I were sitting in the coach, talking to my brother on the phone, when I caught a glimpse of something fly past the window. I looked outside, in the direction I saw it flying and spotted this hawk in a tree. I grabbed my camera and tried to get as close as I could hoping to get a photograph. I was able to capture the photo above before it flew.
A little later we decided to take the “girls” for a walk and as we were heading out the coach, Howard spotted the hawk sitting again in the same tree, this time facing us.
I was able to get pretty close to this beauty. It seemed transfixed on something at the edge of the lake, or so it seemed to me. After awhile I began to get worried that it might be ill (it wasn’t).
After spending time taking just a few photos (haha), I decide we need to continue on our hike and I slowly walk away, leaving the hawk sitting in the tree.
As we head down the path, a shadow displays itself, on the ground, in front of us. Looking up we see a big bird flying overhead.
To be continued….

Thank you for the amazing photos. Nature allowed us to see real beauty and freedom.
Thank you John for your inspiring words about nature. I guess I never stopped to consider how true your words are – the freedom that nature brings.
Thanks for your kind words!
Such a beautiful bird, Sheila. Lucky you to see him from so close. 🙂
Hi Sylvia, I hope you are having a wonderful day. I do feel lucky that this Red-shouldered Hawk allowed me to get so close. I think it was aware of the Bald Eagle and was being very still.
I agree Sheila…what an amazing capture.
