Hello Tom
Wonderful in flight capture of this hawk. I like composition, colors and perfect focus

hello Tom

this is an excellent photo, i love much more this kind of photos
of birds/wild animals with their habitat than the superb close-ups,
fine POV and framing, superb focus sharpness and details,
and a beautiful scenery as background, TFS


Hi Tom,
Beautiful in-flight shot, perfect timing and sharpness. As an image, a photo to be proud of. The note should have been a bit more informative though.
Tfs, best regards from Hungary (Europe), László

Hello Tom,
A super in-flight shot showing the Red-tail in full flight with his talons easily visible. Wonderful detail and beautiful colors along with just the right amount of exposure. Great work!!
I can't seem to get close to these guys here in Ohio for some strange reason or another. They always take off whenever I try to approach them.

Hi Tom,

superb moment captured so well, the subject stands out of the bg nicely and is placed well, and also showing its details while leaving the environment visible too. TFS!

Best regards,

Hi Tom,
Cool shot of the red-tailed hawk. Ridgefield is a really cool preserve. I have been reading up on it and will probably visit soon.
Paul :)
