Red Shoulder Hawk

What a well dressed hawk: has a morning suit and a black long-tailed formal jacket on, like a British Royal on. Sunday ready for Chapel!

Superbly detailed and just the right clarity!

Great job, Tim. When did you make this?

Thanks, Asher.

The image is from January 2013, photographed at Viera Wetlands in Florida.

The hawk was perched atop a dead tree right in front of me, but so as to get a better angle for a photo,
I backed up a bit and shot the image with a 1.4x teleconverter mounted on a 500mm lens. This created
the more horizontal perspective. I would have been shooting the underside of the bird had I not backed
up. The main issue was holding steady a 13-pound lens / camera combination and trying to avoid blurring
due to camera shake. I was rewarded in this case for my patience as the hawk remained for several
minutes before taking flight.

These are manual exposures 1/2000 sec @f5.6, iso 1250.
Here's another view...

Think of all the treasure that are hidden in peoples cupboards and sticks and never see the light of day!

Such stunning photographs must be unearthed and shown. Everyone must catalog and revisit their collections!

Thanks so much for sharing!
