Nothing will get me reaching for my camera faster than the cry of a hawk.
This time we were out for our regular walk and I didn't have my best lens.
A pair of Red-tailed Hawks were flying together, pairing up I assumed, as creatures do in the spring.
I have read that hawks will soar high up in the sky and grab talons, consummating their courtship in free fall. If you enlarge this image you will see that the higher of the two birds is assuming a very strange posture, legs down, head down and shoulders hunched, not a normal flying posture for a hawk.
They flew higher and higher, out of sight, but I'm pretty sure I know what he had in mind but was she of the same mind?
