  7. Amazing ….. as usual ! I tell you for the last time: inner talent means inner talent, you have it. It is something anybody can learn. Go on I keep on following you, I have talked about you to some friend of mine working for Natural History Museums and In art Expo. Go on…. I will write a personal mail if I will have personal details. I say time in front of some of your photos, really. Stendhal Syndrome?

    I love this shot, there is a Red Tailed hawk in my neighbourhood too. It would be difficult to get a shot like this of it. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Thanks for sharing. Lovely shot. Someday I’ll get a picture of a hawk perched on a fake owl… or better still, an owl perched on one.

  14. Beautiful! Did it take long before she gave you that look or was this just the best of a series of glaring bird shots?

    • I only took three or four shots and she turned toward me just for this one.
