Hello friends, with this new photo of the Red-shouldered Hawk
taken a few days ago today I want to come and celebrate 2 birthdays,
first my birthday, today I am 2 times 25 years old, 50 years old WOW !
but even at 50 years old in the depths of myself I remained a teenager...
and today it is also my 11th birthday in TrekNature.

1/2500s f/5.6 ISO1000 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).


« Red-shouldered Hawks soar over forests or perch on tree branches
or utility wires. Its rising, whistled kee-rah is a distinctive sound of
the forest. They hunt small mammals, amphibians, and reptiles
either from perches or while flying. »

Bonjour Asbed,

Les branches cadrent bien l'oiseau. Tu as bien capturé le vol de l'oiseau. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails de la Buse à épaulettes. La lumière fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.


His Asbed,
I wish to congratulate you for your 11 years of TN, where your professional expertise was noted by all of us and heeded by many. Thanks for this perfect falcon shot. I noticed the 1/2'500 sec shutter speed. As for your first 50 years, just wait for the other 50 ... (-:
Best regards, Dietrich

Bonjour Asbed,
Tout d'abord Bon anniversaire avec un peu de retard et les onze ans de TN ne sont pas à négliger non plus.
De temps à autre je jette un regard ici et c'est avec plaisir que j'ai vu que tu y étais toujours,

Hi Asbed,
Congratulations and thanks for your 11 years, we all learned a lot from you and from your wonderful photos. This majestic image isn't an exception, fantastic playing with lights and shadows, with proper exposure to catch both the flying hawk and the beautiful sunshine. Amazing shot from your 'No. 1. Top Class' folder. Congratulations!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
