Cooper’s Hawk

Ahhh, sooo sunny… sooo blue… sooo HAWK!!!!!!!!! It was a perfect evening to work on my birds in flight technique and I vaguely remember thinking something along the lines of “Hurry and get set up so you don’t miss anything.” Well, I didn’t hurry and this Cooper’s Hawk cruised by almost as soon as I arrived. The ensuing scramble to get the camera pointed in an upward direction and mash down the shutter button would have been amusing and probably a little awkward for any onlookers. Hopefully there weren’t any that day.
