Soaring Red-Shouldered Hawk

Blue sky and soaring hawks, I must be quick to capture either one this time of year.

See more skies, blue, cloudy or shrowded in fog at SkyWatch Friday, hosted for us each week by Klaus, Sandy, Wren and Sylvia

Superb! Takes my breath away! We had beautiful blue skies yesterday -- they've disappeared today and we're back to gray. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Awesome shot! You are fast. Really shows the details of spread tail and wingtips.

His tail is like a fan! Those white marking really stand out.

You were quick with the capture; good picture of the hawk. I love the blue in the sky; haven't seen many blue skies this year!

I'm so glad you're so much better at catching birds than I am. I hope it's because you get to see more of them than I do, but I doubt it. This one's wonderful!
