As I was returning home yesterday, I noticed these beautiful Red-tailed Hawks up in a tree by the pond at the entrance of our subdivision. I dashed home, grabbed the camera and went back to find that they were thankfully still there. (Click to see them larger.) I snapped these from the car, and just as I was getting ready to change the ISO setting to allow for more light on an overcast day (I adjusted the levels in Photoshop as these were fairly dark), the one on the lower branch stretched his wings and took off. I was thrilled to see the image I caught just before he flew! Check out that red tail!
