The good thing about walking around taking photos in a snow storm with rapidly dropping temperatures is that all of the animals seem to be moving a bit slower. Take this hawk, for example. In all of my attempts last year, I could never get a good, clear shot of a bird of prey. My camera is not that fancy. I’m still learning as a photographer. And birds of prey are pretty hard to sneak up on.
This guy was willing to stay put long enough for me to get as close as I could and zoom in as far as I could in the waning light and blowing snow to get this shot. As best as I can tell, this is a red-shouldered hawk. If anyone can confirm or correct me, that would be great!
