For the Birds

I couldn't resist sharing the quick snap I took of this beautiful bird. I'm assuming that it's a hawk, but feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. In any case, he looked rather hawkish. He watched me very carefully as I inched forward enough to get a good shot. He was very brave and stood his ground. For a moment I thought he might be injured as I didn't expect him to let me get so close, but eventually he proved me wrong and soared off.

Isn't he lovely?

That's awesome Carla, where'd you take it? I wonder if he's the same kind as the one B. got a photo of last spring?
What kind of camera do you have again?

Wow, that's a great shot B took! This bird was just across the orange bridge. The shot was taken with my trusty old Cannon.
