Hello friends,
the Red-shouldered Hawk.

1/4000s f/5.6 ISO1000
85mm (35mm eq:127mm).


« Whether wheeling over a swamp forest or whistling
plaintively from a riverine park, a Red-shouldered Hawk
is typically a sign of tall woods and water.

It’s one of our most distinctively marked common hawks,
with barred reddish-peachy underparts and a strongly
banded tail. In flight, translucent crescents near the
wingtips help to identify the species at a distance.
These forest hawks hunt prey ranging from mice
to frogs and snakes. »

Hello Asbed,
Although I have hundreds of different bird species posted, birds of prey stay my favorites.
This is a great photo of a Red-shouldered Hawk in flight. Very beautiful light and colours. Excellent sharp details, even you used your 85 mm lens. Superb timing.

Great pose on the air! I like it. Thank you for sharing. Saludos.

Bonsoir Asbed,

L'oiseau est bien placé dans le cadrage. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de la Buse à épaulettes en vol. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.
