That is an amazing photo. God you're good. I am, indeed, in awe of your photographic skills.
Oooh...that's a nice one. :)
Your verse goes perfectly with the wonderful photo!! You are doubly blessed.
What's this over on the right about you being a "very amateur photographer"? I think SOMEBODY has that all wrong.I'm with you on the prompts. The H?
Phenomenal photo, it really is stunning. The sharpness of the bird leaves my mouth hanging open...I should shut it.
yep i got a bit of that awe myself...love how the light int he shot is centered around the hawk too...nice one cheryl
I'm with Bryan, there is nothing "amateur" about your photography. ;) This is an amazing shot, truly.
Great shot! You're obviously using much better gear than me and my cell phone. You also obviously know a lot more about photography than I do!
Most gorgeous photo ever! Love it!
I like the unexpected simplicity of your selection. That IS powerful.
Wow. Wow. Wow. Amazeballz.
Beautiful photo and words. Thank you for sharing that!
For some reason the word Peace came to mind when I saw this lovely capture. but I do see power in it as well. Just lovely.
That is the best 'in flight' Red-Tailed Hawk shot I've ever seen... generally they are so back lit they are just a silhouette... SO beautifully done!
You're clearly an amatuer photographer, because a professional would've captured her reflection in the hawk's eye. Other than that, though, I really like. A lot. ;)
Sure. I could take a picture like that. If I had a better camera. And a red-tailed hawk. And any talent whatsoever.Amazing photograph.
I LOVE THIS. We have lots of red tailed hawks here. My mom (over 70) even works with one at the zoo and feeds it. They are Power, indeed. Beautiful birds!
It really is a beautiful photo. Love it. Tragedy - can't wait to see what you do. Mine is... tragic :(
Thank ye kindly. Didn't anyone tell you I'm a ringer?
Thank you. If it weren't for haiku, I wouldn't have a damn thing to say.
I have a bad case of the 'you wouldn't believe the amazing photos other people shoot' hence the 'very amateur' tag I gave myself a long time ago.
Thanks Mo. Open or shut, just watch out for low-flying insects and spiders.
They all have an Icarus complex. I'm kinda glad since the sun shining through their tail feathers is glorious.
Thanks Ziva. Seeing it when it was flying fairly low didn't hurt one little bit.
I'm shooting with a 5 or 6-year old 35mm with a zoom lens. I've spent enough time dogging the heels of really fine photographers that I've learned a few things. I am amazed at what people can do with their cell phones. Mine has an onscreen button so every picture I attempt is always blurry. When I touch the button, I tend to lift up just a bit. For some reason, I need more than 2 hands to make it work.
Thanks Linda. The subject matter has a whole lot to do with it.
Thanks Sue. You've been around me long enough to know that, while I tend to overthink the living crap out of a thing, in the end I am pretty simple. ;-)
Well, thank ye kindly. Amazeballz is one of the nicest things anyone has written in a while.
Thank you all for letting me join in the insanity!
Thanks Jenny. When I watch them without my camera in hand, peace is exactly what I feel.
Thanks Mizz Bloom. For once I managed to see this when it very low in its upward spiral. Like just above the tree line low. If you saw all the shots I took, you'd see how quickly it became a silhouette through the lens. My eyeballs always saw that flashy red tail but not so the camera.
I tried, honestly I did but the damn bird wouldn't cooperate. That's the trouble with these wild things, they pay absolutely no attention to direct orders.
The red-tailed hawk is really the key, trust me on this one.
I love to hear about people who care for them. Is it being rehabilitated for release?
Thanks Kristen. My tragedy is, well, um, as dramatic as I can handle these days.
You grabbed me with this one. I love red-tail hawks and have many in my area. I even wrote about one on my blog a couple of weeks ago. Really a lovely shot.
Thank you Jayne. From what I've read, they're the most common hawk in the states. Today, was osprey day here on the coast. Love being on their migratory path.
That is an awe-some shot! Birds of prey always represent awesome power whether in flight on on the ground. Nice shot.
Wow ! I love being able to see all the markings and colors so clearly! The neutralized background complements the birds coloring as well! [duly taking mental notes for future reference:-)]
magnificent; great capture!
Beautiful image and haiku!
Absolutely beautiful!!! As he soars, his eyes are ever-alert searching, searching for his next prey. Love this.Easter Parade Critters is my Saturday Post.
An amazing shot!
What a lovely image! Your poetry is also nice.
You did a good job capturing this wonderful bird. What a beauty!
I would go with dufi, sounds classier than dufuses, that is if dufus can be considered classy. lol Love the haiku and am horribly jealous of the hawk. Happy Easter.
