[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Based on the shape of head and beak, I am guessing that this is a Red-Tailed Hawk. However, I would be delighted if someone would correct me.
I know that there is a non-natural element in this image, but these fellows seem to prefer the signs and fence posts as resting points

Hi Silke,
Great shot! Congratulation.
Superbe sharpness and details.

Ciao Silke, nice see you on TN after a long time, great capture of superb rapax in fantastic pose, splendid sharpness, fine details annd wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Silke,
Quite funny shot. Technically brilliant, but I feel a central composition with more narrow crop might be more powerful. Probably you didn't want to crop the words "Spry Lake". :-) Unique and also funny placing of watermark, I love it!
Tfs, best regards, László
