Sloppy Hawk Take-off

Recommended Posts

I had this Red-tailed Hawk land in a tree near me today after I had finished taking photos of the Coot's and it had a less than graceful take-off.

 

Here you can see it's getting ready to fly

things still looking good for the Hawk

now for whatever reason it decided to grab onto the small branch in front of it....check the horrified look in the Hawk's eyes as it sees the branch is breaking

The branch falls and the Hawk does a bit too...but it has wings so it just continued on with it's day

Nice series Brandon. I wish that I could find the time to get out more with my camera. I plan to get out just about every weekend but it seems that something comes up, or the weather is not suitable for photography.

 

Keep posting Brandon. Your shots will encourage me to get out one way or another.
