Hawks


Shooting against the sun did not yield the greatest result, but I am posting it anyway.


This is better, but it was a good distance away.  Different hawk of course.

i actually like the blown out white sky from shooting into the sun.. it really is hard to do. the second shot he is a handsome hawk...

We are seeing hawks circling high above the lawn. I think they are looking for bunnies. (sadly) You got a great photo!

I may actually like the first one the best. I hate having to shoot against the sun, but there is something so cool about how he is sitting against the electrical wiring that really adds interest.

Great pictures---both of them. Hawks are interesting --but I don't like it when they come near my feeders searching for some lunch!!!!! Since they don't eat bird food ---I know they are looking for a BIRD to eat.... That's when I don't like them very much... Gotta protect my little birdies you know!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

I think there is just something about Hawks that we like,
they always get my attention when seeing one.
Good shots

Hawks are interesting birds, but I don't like to see them around my house. I used to have one that would hang out waiting for my martins to have their babies. I don't know what happened to that one, but I do see them along the roads hanging on to fence posts or electric line posts, waiting for food to walk by. (rats, or whatever)

I am always elated to see a hawk. I think one has moved into one of the woods near our home and he has been a daily visitor, not necessarily at my feeders.

Hawks are wonderful looking birds. I enjoyed seeing your photos of them.

You're so right: light is so critical. I've got a tendency to only take photos on sunny days with good light. I just give up otherwise. So I salute you for carrying on. Your hawk on the fence post is lovely. It looks so dainty.
