 I captured this hawk sometime before we left for Tennessee...I think we were on our way home from Paris, Illinois.  Luckily, we could pull off the road.
He didn't sit still long once I got out of the car...but I considered myself lucky to get these.  They are a bit better if opened up in a new tab/window.

So, the cold wind has blown all day.  I suppose we have Sandy to think for that.  I think we won't know for a while the extent of the damage from the hurricane.  It is hard to imagine what people are going through while the rest of us sit in the comfort of our own home.

I think you did great to get two shots! I usually muff up the flying away shot. These big Red-tails just love to sit on poles this time of year. So many of them out there right now.

You were lucky to get this detailed image of the hawk before he flew. Nice shots.
