Eyes Like a Hawk

Eyes Like a Hawk

April 23, 2015, at the Ridgefield NWR.  I was driving through the Ash tree forest and spotted this recently fledged Red-tailed Hawk perched on a branch about 8 feet off of the ground.  The bird let me approach from two different angles in my truck and was mostly looking down at the ground for potential prey.  Every now and then it would glance at me though, resulting in this pose. Processed in b&w using Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2, Photoshop CC, and Lightroom.

Canon 5D Mark III, 1/1250, f4, ISO 2000, 500mm, 10:19 a.m.
