Anyone able to help identify what type of plant/tree this might be? (SOOC)
This was the close up I was working on over the weekend when that Red-tailed Hawk (posting from yesterday) dropped in about 15 ft behind me. The Hawk attacked, killed, and began eating its prey right in front of me. In yesterdays post, Close Encounter with a Red-Tailed Hawk, the Hawk is actually staring me down! He became aware of my presence, or was at least bother enough by the sound of the camera shutter snapping away to take a break from his lunch to look me up and down before returning to his meal!
The hawk took a few more bites of his lunch and then decided to retreat to a treetop perch about 20 yards away to watch and wait for me to leave before continuing on with his lunch... He continued to give me the stink-eye from up in the tree. The "Treetop Perch" image was posted in another of my galleries. Please check out the image here - Treetop Perch
