I was sitting at my computer this morning when the motion outside the window drew my attention to this Red-shouldered Hawk landing high in one of the trees bordering my yard. I didn’t think he would remain long enough, but I had to at least try…so I got my camera, put on a long lens, mounted it on a tripod, and went out into the yard to a spot where I could get the bird in the viewfinder without any intervening branches in the way. That took me at least 5 minutes. Luckily, being as high up as he was—about 70 feet—the hawk wasn’t threatened by my presence below, so it remained where it was and I was able to get the shot.
