A Hunting He Will Go by Melissa Carlini

While out shopping the other day in Cranberry Township, PA, I was driving through the parking lot and something caught my eye in the trees so I quickly parked my car (taking up 3 spaces because I was very crooked) in hopes of getting a few good shots of this beautiful Red Tail Hawk. I was able to get quite a few shots of him in just a matter of five minutes. Just after I captured this shot, he spread his wings and headed towards the ground and I lost sight of him after that. I have always been amazed by these beautiful birds! I hope you like my photo and thank you so very much for looking!!

This photo was taken with my Nikon D5100. I cropped it in Corel Paint Shop Pro X4 and tone mapped it just a tiny bit to bring out the details just a smidge.

    Just beautiful Melissa – usually they have branches and twigs in the way – caught just right !

  • Oh Roy….YES those branches and twigs were VERY tricky to work around because it was a VERY windy day on Friday (March 3, 2012) when I took this photo. Most of the shots I did end up getting, the bird was VERY blurry because the camera focused on the branches. What an experience!! Thank you SO VERY much for taking the time to comment on this one!! I am so happy you like it!! :)
