I didn't have to work hard for this shot, Debra. Thanks

Debra Plett

Wow super shot Harold. Great action, details and focus. The clouds really make this a dramatic capture.

Thanks Jane. It was a young hawk, hasn't got its red tail yet, so it wasn't afraid to come straight towards me.

Great action shot, Harold!! I know how hard it is to focus when they are moving. Well done!!

I was coming out from behind a spruce tree to get a photo of this redtail hawk on another spruce when it came off its tree and flew almost directly over me at a low altitude. I couldn't have asked for more.
