[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This juvenile Red Tailed Hawk was very tame, and allowed for many photographic opportunities. In this case, I was sitting on the ground near a tree he was in, when he flew right past my head (by less than a foot), and into the weeds going after prey. He then came up (empty handed) and posed for me.
