Red-Shouldered Hawk


During my recent photo trip to Tallahassee, FL I stopped at a neighborhood park. The skies were cloudy and growing darker with the approaching dusk. I was wandering around shooting the blooming trees and an occasional bird. There was a small lake with a blue heron parked in the middle, paying no apparent attention to anything else. A lady walking her dog saw me and asked if I'd seen the red-shouldered hawk. Of course, I hadn't so I followed her to where she'd seen it last. It wasn't there but quickly appeared. The hawk also seemed to pay no mind to the people and dogs on leashes. It flew into some heavy brush and trees along the banks of the lake but it let me get a few shots here and there. It was exciting stuff!
