A series of Red-Tailed Hawk images from a previous trip to the Brigantine Division of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Oceanville, NJ. I got quite a few images of this hawk which seemed very content to pose for me. Usually they fly off, but I was quite a distance away so it did not fly off. I was using a Canon 400mm DO lens with a 1.4x Teleconverter on a Canon 1DmkIV.
Wonderful captures, Reed. I love the second, close-up, what an eye!
Thanks so much Eliza! Hawks & Raptors are some of my favorite birds to photograph!
Nice Photos! People don’t realize how large this hawk is. I’ve seen them challenging great horned owls!
Thanks! Hawks & Eagles are some of my favorite Photo Subjects!
One of our few year-round resident raptors. Nice collection, Reed. Especially the third.
