Swainson's Hawk

Swainson's hawk

Seeing hawks on fenceposts while I'm driving is frustrating. First, it's hard to spot them in time to stop. And if there's traffic and not much shoulder, then stopping may not even be an option. If you drive by they ignore you. But if you stop, they often immediately fly away. Or even more annoying, they sit long enough for you to get your camera almost ready, and then they fly away. This was one of the more cooperative subjects.

As usual, these aren't as sharp as I'd like. It's hard to hand hold a 900mm equivalent lens!
