I have been trying and trying to capture this guy by lens! Saturday he showed up while the grand kids were here and the littlest one says, "I don't even think he knows you're photographing him, Grandma!"
I can guarantee he didn't; otherwise he wouldn't have been so cooperative! But finally the hawk I've been catching in mid-flight through sunrise pictures and passing by as I was driving down the road, settled down for a photo shoot! He is most beautiful. And I am most grateful that he allowed me this opportunity.
