You have some time off then? I enjoyed having you stop by today.

The hawk series is fantastic. Makes me think of "Look to the left, look to the right - Stand up sit down, fight fight fight."

S. J. Qualls said...

Really is a beautiful bird! All I ever see of the larger birds, is buzzards.

Amazing shots of this beautiful raptor! I'm jealous - I seem to only ever find them when they are covered up by tree branches/leaves!

GreenComotion said...

Sharp photos, Theresa!
I particularly love the beautiful yellow above the beak of the Hawk.
Have a Beautiful NTX Day!
Peace :)

eViL pOp TaRt said...

Andrew Fulton said...

What a stunning bird to see... lovely images

A big, colorful fellow. I am surprised he stayed long enough for you to get these great shots. Definitely keeping an eye on his surroundings.

Munir said...

Those claws are very impressive. Thanks for sharing. Very nice photography !

Brian King said...

Beautiful hawk! He/she looks like a trouble maker, too! Really nice photos!

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

What a handsome bird. Great photos. I was just watching one yesterday, well it was a red-tail not red-shouldered, but anyway, soaring high above while a pair of crows kept dive-bombing him and harassing him in flight. They never like hawks coming into their area.

Julia said...

He's looking where his next meal is coming from. I doubt he's interested in the seeds you so generously provide the other birds. I bet they are not around while he there. He really commands attention.
Hugs,
JB

Lauren Miller said...

Looking good with his yellow accents!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Great pictures ..l I always get that nictating membrane, so that the eye looks blue or blank... Yours are perfect.

messymimi said...

He looks like he loves posing!

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

Excellent captures! I have only seen one (in OK), who was on the road and not about to give up her lunch, that she had just caught.

Dicky Bird said...

Oh my, awesome pictures!

Rita said...

Great close-ups. If I were a small critter I would be quite nervous. Looks like traces of blood on its leg. Probably a good hunter. :)

Linda said...

Marvelous! And on my screen the hawk is glaring at "Walter" and he is glaring back!

Paul said...

Wow, you got some really nice pictures of this fine looking Hawk!
