Launch of the Red-tailed Hawk

Launch of the Red-tailed Hawk

This beautiful Red-tailed Hawk had few white feathers except for a spot on the top of its wings. A sight to see as it launched from the tree branch. Used a 1.4x extender on the 500mm lens. Taken January 26, 2020, at the Ridgefield NWR in SW Washington State.

Canon 5D Mark IV, 1/1250, f5.6, ISO 1000, 700mm (500 + 1.4x)
