|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|As Luke posted on my last picture, the cycle of life continues. After finding one of these beautiful birds dead on my law, attracted by its sharp calls, today I noticed this one circling high above and grapped my camera and biggest lens to catch a shot of it.|
Not great but it was hundreds of meters up in the sky I would estimate. I think it is a Cooper hawk - the tail is shorter than the tail of a sharp shinned hawk.
Given the extreme blow-up, quality is poor, but its good to know we have another hawk in our neighborhood.

Nice photo of this hawk in fine sharpness and natural colors.
Have a nice weekend,
Being very high in the sky as you mention, you did a great shot
with great focus, sharpness, and details, with the best flight pose, TFS
I know how it's a difficult work to capture a flying bird! I have captured a few which I have already posted but still have, will post soon.
Facing camera to the infinity is really a challenging shot. Well details and perfect color, to me. I like your framing.
Thanks and have a nice Week
