Juvenile Red-tailed Hawk Portrait by Bill McMullen

Juvenile Red-tailed Hawk Portrait by 

Note: View Large. This is NOT a captive bird, it is wild and has a great tolerance of humans. A young Red-tailed Hawk glances back to let me know he is aware of my presence. Photographed in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Canon 7D, 400mm f5.6L, 1/2000, f7.1, iso 400, handheld.

Spending time in the outdoors has always been a passion of mine. Most of my subject matter is avian but I will readily spend hours photographing almost anything else in the natural world. Currently I live near a small town, Rockland, just east of Ottawa. I work in Ottawa and so most of my photography is done in eastern Ontario. Thank you for dropping by and enjoy.
