    but at least I have my favorite hawk to keep me entertained. At least there was an Osprey sited today in CT so it is very near. Thanks for looking and comments welcome.

    1 The normal look when he flies up and lands above me..

    2 He went after a songbird and missed and this was one hell of a tough shot to get with the back light. Shooting with my normal spot metering and +2/3EC the ISO was at 2500, but I saved it a little in post.

    I know I would be so happy to get a few shots like this in the future.

    Great shots.
    George Jr is awesome. You have to love a bird that hams it up for the camera.

    2 & 3 are badass Sweetness! I know how tough those kinds of shots can be (especially since I've yet to get one) LOL. Great stuff man.

    Would love a shot of you lying below all camo'd up.

    You have these birds trained, like set up, roll over etc. Could you teach me?

    On our recent trip A shot as these came to us but we were in the car driving.
    A hawk had taken off from the side of the road where there was road kill.
    And as it flew right towards us and over the top of the car I thought of these shots.
    Now with that I know just how hard it would have been on the day to get these ones posted.
