Embarrassing moment for a hawk. It's like, "OMG, I'm loosing my feathers!" :-)
A chance in a million that you got that shot. So now he has one less feather to clean.Have a great Sunday.Hugs,JB
How cool! I haven't seen a red-shouldered hawk this year...and now I suspect most if not all have flown south for the winter.
what a lovely hunter but i don't like him
that must have been some wind that day
Ha! Plenty more where that came from!
What a cool capture! Awesome Hawk visitor.. I hope your little birds went into hiding.. Happy Sunday!
He's hearty looking! Good zoom!
Enjoyed these photos of that beauty. Very cool captures.
hij schatte al in dat het geen kwaad kon.
Good timing, beautiful photos.
The feather had a split end. And get that camera away from my vanity. Hmmf!
that's brilliant, what a great capture!
Oh no, I'm going BALD!/ middle-aged hawk crisis~
Some guys just can't molt in private! ;) Great shot!
I love the light in these. Did you take them during sunset?MersadMersad Donko Photography
That big bird hate you!But we like you.
As my Sweetie would say, "Shake your tail feathers!"Great catch!
The feathers are flying in Texas:@)
... flutter, flutter, flutter...btw-On my blog, I stupidly deleted yesterday's post. That's why there are 2. hahahaha
What are the chances? Love it!
it's all about the moment and the joy that moment brought to you. not the quality of the picture....and timing, that was perfect timing!!
That is one of the reasons that photography is so much fun. You just never know what the camera will see.
now that's what I call serendipity
What a striking bird!
Love like you've captured this great sequence!
What a great capture Tex!!Wonderful images of the Hawk!!Dimi...
The picture quality is plenty good enough to capture this live shot of bird life. Fine shooting.
Looks like a small bird dive-bombing him.
What a terrific shot!! How often can any of us do that!! Love it!!
Nice timing! I really like the last shot, too!
What is this? Is the eagle losing a feather?Greetings,Filip
That is funny! Good thing he's got lots more, huh? :-)
Tmed to perfection
Perfect timing there. Have a serene and easy Sunday now.Best wishes Molly
Perfect timing! It's like he's thinking I hope no one saw this.
Invite you to watch a new photo album on my blog. I wish you a successful new week.
Good for you, shaking a feather, right on.
Stopping by from Cranky's place to congratulate you on guessing the fake headline from last week. Awesome pics. We have the red-tailed hawk here in Idaho. I love watching them..
He's a handsome guy, and it's cool that you caught him ejecting a feather!
The majestic bird. Did perform a photo. You have an excellent zoom. Greetings.
Good catch, Theresa! You know the old saying: "Timing is Everything!"
Smooth sailing with that feather gone. Majestic capture.
He is probably finishing his summer molt ... I guarantee you there is a new feather that is replacing that one. Great catch, Theresa ... a split second and you would have missed it. Andrea @ From the Sol
it is great sometime when we take a shot and don't see all that is in it until we get is on the computer. Great catch
Speaking of Hawks... This is a nice one!
Very cool catch, Tex!
he still makes a good photo.peter
You caught that just in the nick of time.
o, it was a feather. I thouht it was another bird. Happened to me once. :)
Nice catch! I'm so glad this isn't what I thought the title was saying! Several months ago we saw a dove on the wire out back, with something fluorescent pink on it. I had to zoom in with my camera, only to see it had been shot with a dart! Poor thing.
Great capturing, great pictures.
Great captures! :))
He DOES look like he's playing darts! :-) Nice to see him. Thanks for your comment on my swallow...he's buried in the post about the mission and I hope other bird bloggers will look for him like you did. :-)
Stunning and well-timed shots
T, don't stand under that tree! You'll get a dart in your eye!
Wow, a once-in- a million chance to get that shot, wonder how he felt as that one feather fell out. Jean.
Great catch! At first glance, I thought it was a little bird flying by, super fast! Then I read what you wrote. :DLindy
INCREDIBLE!!! These images with the sunlight and tree perching...fantastic.Thank you, Ms. T, for sharing the link today at I'd Rather B Birdin'!
Nice (funny too) !
Ohhh.. I'd have probably gone looking for the feather. But I guess you didn't notice it until after processing.
That was a cool capture.
Had you actually been trying to capture that feather in free fall it would have been extremely difficult. Have a great week.
feels like witnessing a moment! Cooler than another sharp photo, you revealed the birdALOHA from HonoluluComfortSpiral =^..^=
Hi Theresa, A real Ooo-aah moment when you get that really great photo! Have a pleasant coming week!
Such a compromising moment for such a majestic bird. :)
I always love to see hawks flying around. You did good!
maybe a little embarrassing for him but entertaining for us.
hahhaa....yes, indeed...these are great photos...
Sometimes you get lucky!
Oh, the moment after hawk shaking loose a feather♫♫♫ How interesting and rare capture, isn't it(^_^)ｖ The title 'Playing Darts' made me confused at first p:)Wishing you will have a wonderful new week.Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*
It would be difficult to plan a falling feather photo . . . and there you have it. Tex was there at the right time . . .
Beautiful photo and a favorite subject, Theresa. I like the serendipitous capture of the falling feather.Peace :)
I think it's so cool that you caught that moment for this most handsome hawk!
I wonder what he thought as his feather floated away? Great capture! :-)
I'd be wanting to go find it on the ground! LOL! :)
The perfect moment! Amazing shot! xo
Always fun to catch those candid shots!
Nice capture - I'm often surprised at how few feathers I find when I am about and about - I assume birds must lose small numbers all the time - but its still good to find one.cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne
WOW amazing shot!! Great pics!
gives new meaning to "shaking a tail feather"!
Ha ha - brilliant shots and title.
Good catch, Teresa !!
Bet you did more than a double take!!!!...:)JP
That feather looks like it's zooming through the air!
That is awesome. I noticed our sharp-shinned hawk was back this morning, racing around like a crazy bird. I love that you caught that feather in mid flight.
What a capture...the lose of a feather!!!Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com/?s=The+Adventures+of+Fuzzy+and+Boomer&submit=Search http://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com
Whaaaaaaaa ....... great !!!! How do you get it done in order to photograph hahahahaha .... this I think your title "Playing darts" really super found!
Perfect timing. I always enjoy seeing shots of hawks.
A wonderful bird.
I love hawks. I would have hunted for the feather.
How serendipitous that you captured that feather! lucky you
Neat to see the feather falling from the majestic bird!
So cool!!! I have never heard of a Red-Shouldered Hawk. I'll have to do a little search for them. Really awesome you were able to catch him littering :P
What a catch! Not something we usually would ever see.
