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.
