Rough-legged Hawk Profile

Rough-legged Hawk Profile

This shot was taken in December of 2008 at the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge.  This was one of those magic years when at least this Rough-legged Hawk would perch on the refuge signs and allow you to drive right up next to them.  This bird was within 8 feet of my vehicle.  I was using the Canon XT body with the Canon 100-400mm f5.6L lens.  He flew off shortly after this shot as I’m sure he thought I was crowding him.  He made that clear, vocally!  1/400, f7.1, 400mm, -1/3EV.
