A near full frame capture of a wild Red-tailed Hawk (Buteo jamaicensis), taken from a low POV about 19.2m away. I think the bird is a first year Light juvenile, but perhaps somebody might put me right. The bird was perching high in pine trees in a friend's garden in Chatham, Cape Cod, MA where we have just spent a few weeks' holiday.

My thanks to you all for your support of my last upload a few weeks ago - hope to catch up with you all soonSmile
