Śliczne zdjęcia ,a ich bohater był dość cierpliwy i pozwolił sobie zrobić 4 zdjęcia zanim odfrunął :-).Pozdrawiam cieplutko
Nice shots. It's probably looking for some of your scamper rats :).
Lovely shots. That's a very impressive bird - almost regal looking!
Hi there - looks more like a blue shoulder kite!Great shots – can’t believe you get birds like that in your yard!SM - Australia
Ooooooh... I love hawks. Gorgeous photos! That does look a lot like a painting the way that background come out. Love it! blessings ~ Tanna
This guy actually visits your yard? Wow, what a magnificent creature! Yes, it does look a little like an oil painting, doesn't it? Your captures are wonderful, as ever.
gorgeous... I am totally loving this series
Amazing birds/hawks visiting you and great photos too. I like the "fly away" shot.
it is really great what the glass did to the background, like an added filter, the hawk and the background are beautiful. my fav is the bye bye shot at the end.yesterday in our news, a woman was in her bedroom and heard sound of breaking glass, she ran in her kitchen and a bloody hawk was sitting on her breakfast bar, with a large hole in her kitchen picture window. she called wildlife rescue and they came and got him, he will stay with them for a week and be let go. he is fine.
He's gorgeous! I love the painted look!
Hawks are so beautiful aren't they? We always have lots around here. I like the photos of the pups laying around the bird baths below ~ too cute!xo Catherine
The ones around here will let you get surprisingly close to them,but they are rarely sitting down low for us to do that.Great shots!
What a beauty Tex, I have a soft spot for raptors and that baby is gorgeous. Great photos!Tina xo
I love that background texture. Lovely shots.
very pretty t, the bird and the background!! i have one splashing about on the water that gathers atop my swimming pool cover, we had seen him several times. i have a few pictures BUT they are not so attractive as yours.great capture....had you opened the glass, he would have taken off for sure!!
It does look like an oil painting-beautiful !! I'm always glad to see the tail end of hawks here though! Chased one with a broom away from my chickies once-right out the back door-almost burst through the sliding glass door-I was so determined!!
You did a great job of focusing on the hawk, he is so clear and the bokeh is awesome. It does look like a painting!
Sometimes those shots are only possible through the glass, so good job making the best of it:-) The hawks around here are always on power poles or flying so I've never been able to get an up-close photo. And that's okay because I appreciate them staying away from my chickens.
Great shot, I dont see those at all so it was nice to get a close up and I love the background.
The texture and how it draws out the hawk is amazing!
It really does look like an oil painting! Great shots. He's so majestic.
Impressive shots! Love the fly bye shot. I get hawks in my yard here in the city...they don't visit too long though.
Nice pictures! I like the effect. Blessings from Wisconsin
I tell you - you get all different kinds of birds then we do - I don't think I've seen one here. Not sure.sandie
How nice that you were able to get such good photos through the glass!
A beautiful find.Great photographs again.Costas
A nice series as usual! These are such amazing predators.
WOW I loved these! You're right, the glass made a gorgeous texture.
They turned out great through the glass.
Those are great looking photos, pretty bird!
That additional 'lens' did some neat things to the background. I'm lovin' Mr. Hawk, he's quite photogenic.
Oh, I love that "fly by" shot! I tried this with my owl just yesterday eve., and, well...he was just a blurr.The background and texture is really cool!
I just think they are such handsome fellows! Lucky you to capture him!
Nice catch. It does look like an oil.My daughter was recapping her soccer game last night (I took her brother to his), and she told me that a hawk flew by, landed on the field next to their game and dropped his dinner ( I guess it did not agree with his stomach). Country living and sports at its best.
Instant texture without processing!
It does look like a pretty painting.
Beautiful birds. I still see the one that lives around here now and then.
The bokeh looks like brush strokes - love the shot of the bird flying off!
I like the fly-bye shot the best. Birds always look their best doing what we wish we could.
It really looks weird, like a painting or like heat rising from the ground. Lovely series of shots.
Great captures! I love the perch he chose - so perfect!
He was thinking about going somewhere, wasn't he?
HI Teresa..I always like it when the background image is not what you expect...this worked out great ...the Hawk stands right out ..nice!! Grace
Beautiful shots Tex and that BG effect is stunning!
Oh what a beauty. You got some great shots.
Good work Teresa, and the background is marvelous.
What a beautiful bird!!
Neat effect through the glass!
They were great shots with some interesting texture to them--I wonder what he was looking for...
hawks are such beautiful birds. Esp. when they are perched on a pole looking down for their prey.
Great shots of a handsome bird. Love the last one!
Very strong bird shots through the glass. I don't see how you handle so many comments, but I can easily understand why….excellent pictures!
I'm not very familiar with hawks. This looks like a baby hawk but I bet he'd make Thanksgiving mincemeat out of road kill in a hurry. Delores just said said something interesting on my blog. "String enough of us together and we'll light up the world." YayManzanita@Wannabuyaduck
Great series!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
powerful shots of a beautiful bird!
Great images of a beautiful bird..The "Fly Bye" caption made me smile... a lovely post.
Fantastic shots! I love how the glass produced a beautiful background. I watched a video of a bird rehabilitation place last night. I was so amazed at how the lady nursed a red tailed hawk that was left for dead and trained it to follow commands. He was amazing and so smart. Of course, he can never be returned to the wild because of his injuries, but will go to a sanctuary to live where he can be protected. Very impressive birds, for sure!
Look at you getting fancy shmancy! Actually, I love the effect. And I have you know, in case you have overlooked this fact, I have been current reading you blog for TWO days now! TWO days! I will quit talking now because I will jinx myself and fall behind again :)
I love raptors
Beautiful!!! Love the background, oh and the bird is awesome too. Really awesome that you get those critters in your yard.
I absolutely adore the texture. It really adds a whole other dimension.
Magnificent bird! (glad he/she's not around my chickens)Fabulous background-bokeh as well! Happy Tuesday to you. -Tammy
T, great shots. Your Bokeh is quite interesting. Made a very painterly effect!
Hi Texwisgirl, That "Take-off" picture is exceptionally nice! Have a wonderful day!
He is such a beauty!
Great "texture"...and great images. How wonderful to get to experience this wildlife from your window!
Never seen a Hawk like that...love the texture in the picture!
Great photos of the hawk, Theresa.. (See--I got it right!!!! ha).... Love the fly-away one also.Hugs,Betsy
What a handsome bird.
Beautiful shots, T! The background is wonderful! It's nice to have subjects like that so close.
Thats some heat haze Tex.Its wonderful when you get raptors showing so well in your yard \ garden, it really is a privalidge for us when they afford us the time to watch them at such close quarters.I love your blog image at the top of your home page, it really is fantasticDave
Nice photos of the hawk. You got it!!!
those red shouldered hawks are beautiful...and your pictures prove it!! VERY nice...i especially like the fly-bye!! :)
Of course, if it were an oil painting, it would not be dry enough to post yet!Great series and wonderful technique Texwis!
Cool effect in these photos and a very beautiful visitor! :)
What a gorgeous bird and your captures are terrific as always! Superb!Sylvia
Very impressive photos of both the bird and the bokeh you achieved.
Love the plumage in the last photo. Stripey! :)
That is some very pretty bokeh. I can never tell the sharp shinned from the red shouldered. They look so similar!
Lovely shots! Very interesting, through the glass!
hey TWG, I'm wondering if you got any of that rain that fell over the weekend? this guy is regal. my fave is lift-off. happy day to you. and the next time you're in town, I'm taking you to a fish fry...
Visit, pose, then stop in mid flight so you can get a perfect shot. Amazing bird!How DO you do it - through a glass door even?
How I love hawks and birds of prey!
Cool looking Hawk and your photos are wonderful.
Lovin' the in flight shot, very impressive bird:@)
Incredible I love the texture and hawks are my favourite. B
that looks very cool...reminded me of a palette knife type of background...now iF I could only paint a hawk as good as he deserves to be.Thanks fro the feathers again ! My husband says it may be illegal to use the owl feathers on my art...do you know anything about that ? I know eagle feathers are illegal to have, right?Well I made art with them...Im bad-KAT-
Hey, two days ago I thought about you and how I wish you'd have been here with you camera! A flock (maybe 200+)of hawks. All sitting in the trees 2 miles down the road. I took some pathetic photos (by your standards) And thought how I would love for you to see this!!! Very strange and eery it was, but very cool! Just like your photos(cool that is :)!)
oooooo....he's a beauty. I love the texture the glass provided.
The background is excellent and I really like the last shot.
Yes...these really is water under the boardwalks. Due to the drought, it is not very deep, but is is very mushy and gooey. There is no way you would want to step off the walkway. I want to go back in the springtime and summer when the bog plants are in bloom. That will really be a treat. Now to your gorgeous shots this week. Every time I look at your birds and that gorgeous home with the water around it, I think...heaven on earth. It is such a beautiful place. genie
So very proud looking.
It really DOES look like an oil painting! Beautiful shots!!
Those are beautiful shots! I love hawks. We have a lot of cooper and red tail hawks around here but I've never gotten a good picture.
You're right, really neat effect and wonderful shots of the subject too.
You got some special shots! That snag must be a great perch for many birds.Wish I had one outside my window.
he's beautiful! and that is a neat effect!
He is a very handsome fellow. I do like the effect created by the glass, the tight crop does make it look like a painting.
Gorgeous, your blog can always give me some surprise
and that's through the glass? I love these surreal shots. Fantastic!Loving that he caught you shooting him and you still caught his departure. Cool.BlessYourHeart
These are all gorgeous, but the last picture (the Fly Bye) made me go, "WOW."
Impressive job getting such a clear image. Much better than anything I could have done.
they do look like oil paintings... how cool! =)
very nice bird, and you are right about the background. :)
It really does look like a painting! I like it.
Awesome background and the bird is a beauty.Your drawing,painting ability is so amazing, T. When did you start doing art..?..as a child ?
What a great series! I love that fly bye shot!
Very artsy work, TWG -- and the fly-bye shot was a great one for the finish! I enjoyed these. :)Did you get any rain from this latest line of storms that moved through?! I keep hopin' for you!
Now that is what I call *real* photography!Wonderfully caught!Many thanks for visiting me via Hilary and for your kind comments.Maggie XNuts in May
they look so proud indeed!exceptional series of photos!
A beautiful bird and great photos of him.
When it takes forever to get to the end of the comments to say How much I loved this . . coffee has to be cold.. have any fresh. ??He is wonderful. Loved this post too.
That did make a wonderful background for this gorgeous bird. And I don't think I've ever seen hawk thighs before...
They are what gave my blog it's title;) Such gorgeous hawks and I love their voice, one of the loudest hawk voices anywhere. During breeding season, they are so loud and I am always so thrilled to hear them, they remain here all year. I have had to take many an image through glass like this, or miss an opportunity. They do look sort of like paintings, when captured this way, very lovely!
Excellent captures of my favorite buteo Theresa! That is a cool effect you got through the glass. I have had one visit by our local Red-shouldered Hawk to the bird feeder area and I got off a shot through the window. Of course as soon as I turned the door knob the bird flew.
