Young Red Tailed Hawk

Some friends and I took a long mountain ride this morning and saw this young Redtail sitting on the middle of the road. We thought maybe it was injured but when I got my camera out and walked over towards it, it got up and just stood there looking at me. I started taking pics of it and decided to walk closer to it, he just stood there watching me. It started to fly just above the road then landed on the road again. I had my 250mm zoom lens on but after it calmed down I got closer and took about 30 pics of it. Some of these are just head shots and if you look close you can see me reflected on his eye.






















In this pic I got one of the guys to make him spread his wings a bit. Once we were done we shooed him off the road then left.

Nice pics !!

A government that doesn't trust it's law abidding citizens to bear arms is unworthy of trust itself.
