Im not real sher if this is a Juvenile Red Tail Hawk or a Prairie Falcon. I'm thinking more Red Tail. Ether way he sher looks like he has a attitude. Probably because he`s having a bad feather day.

This is a Red-tail for sure. Nice pose and setting. You might consider running some noise reduction to remove the pixelation in the background. A lovely shot one way or another.

Hi Tom,

A nice capture of this predator,colors look very natural,details are good,think a bit of noise in the BG,maybe because of the crop,anyway a fine capture,

Hi Tom,
I used to count the hawks I'd spot when I got into farming country driving back to school after a weekend home. I always wanted to attempt a picture, but never did. This one is great!
They all seem to love those fence posts. This shot really reminds me of my trips to school. Thanks!


This is a good capture of this beautiful and majestic bird. I like this pose you captured and nice details, This eye contact is impressive too. The background is a little noisy but nothing that bad :) I would have been impressed being that close to this bird. Thanks!
