This is a photo I took while trying to take flight shots. I'm afraid it isn't very good quality but I do like the hawk in flight. I hope some day I'll get the hang of taking flight shots and be able to post better photos. I'll post a few more next week that I like.

Even if it is a little fuzzy it is still a great shot, better than anything I've gotten. Nicely done!!

Looks great to me. The detail and coloring are great. Considering it was taken against such a light background you can't ask for much more out of the saturation either! Brilliant capture! Thanks for sharing!

Hi, Debra! Great to see you posting birds in the gallery!!! This Hawk is beautiful, what a exciting view of it... not "making lazy circles in the sky" () but having a nice flight over your head!!! Looking forward to seeing more stuff!!!
