    Default CA red shouldered hawk

    got this RSH taking off frame a few weeks ago. It's a FF image and the most detailed hawk flight image I have made to date. The lower part of the BG was unfortunate but does not make this one a delete in my book. If I am lucky next time he will bank against a cleaner BG


    shot with Sony A9 II and 600GM f/4 1/3200 sec ISO-1000. hand held, processed with C1P.

    Amazing detail and superb light on the bird! Sharp and lovely wing position. The lower BG doesn't distract much.

    Sweet, sweet light, pose and details. I like the vegetation but this would have been super killer with this beauty fully against that sky. Love it as is though. TFS

    What a beauty - spot on!! I hesitate to make any suggestions whatsoever ... but I would venture to say maybe a tad less luminance on the yellow bill around the nostril...... yes I like the light on this one

    Wonderful light, flight angle, outstretched wings. Don't mind the BG.

    Arash the bird is so great .sharp and the light to die for. The light really makes the difference here IMO. Just makes the hawk pop the bush is secondary. Nice grey background even offsets this more. Hawk looks like it still has some crop. TFS
