Wondeful shot. I love the tone of the picture, the brown background with the brown of the bird. It looks like it has been sepia toned.

Just last weekend I got to see a red tail hawk close up at an Earth Day event I was working at. He was injured, and is now an "education" bird.

Every now and then the hawk would look right at me, with a look like "I'd like a chunk outa your nose, buddy." It was intimidating! Or he'd look at the handler's head like "That ear looks good!"

It was a real treat to see one that close.

Brian, thanks so much for stopping by..

Dave,LOL to funny, the hawk didn't really want to eat the handler, thought he may have been looking to him/her for food. and yes it might of tried to take a chunk out of you, just to make you stay back though. lol they are really fascinating birds. I am glad you got to see one up close.. It is great when they are used for education purposes rather than being put to sleep. Catch you later

P. S. Not a metaphor: they really are gods, from a past time, of freedom, kindness and glory!
