Red-Tailed Aerial Aerobics

Wings up!
Stretch 'em out!
Now down!

No clouds in our skies of late but there have been a lot of raptors.  This Red-tailed Hawk took to the air as soon as I pulled out my camera.

See more views of the sky and what is in it at SkyWatch, Friday; hosted for us by Sandy and Sylvia.

If I could get fabulous flight shots like these I'd be happy that the red-tailed took to the air! Wonderful.

He thought he could escape, but you fooled him!! I love watching the way the light plays over his feathers with each sweep of his wings!!
