    Default Red-Tailed Hawk

    Great outing a few months back that reeled in this fella. It was golden-hour and if he didn't just choose the prefect spot to return with his catch. Not until I got back home did I see that "On the one "hand" he had his mouse, but on the other he had a nasty infection." Kinda felt bad for everyone concerned. But, still happy with the shootout.

    Settings: Nikon D500 with 300 PF f.4, 1/600, 5.6, 420mm @ ISO 1400 - HH. Post: removed some distracting bkg limbs and NR with NeatPhoto.

    C&C welcome.

    I like the outstretched wing, and the nice light. The off-angle light direction and cluttered perch aren't working for me.

    Ditto Bill, the hawk was posing for you but the cluttered BG and the side light weren't helping you much here
