Real nice head on. These fellows are almost as abundant in Florida as Rock Doves in NYC .
Had one hanging out at the complex a couple of years ago .

Thanks everyone!

Red-shouldered hawks are pretty common everywhere in the East, but like all raptors, they tend to be skittish and can be difficult to approach in the wild.

By hiding behind a few bushes, I was able to sneak to within range.
A dense fog made for a difficult shoot but I too like the solid white background the fog helped to create.
