Hawk at CHAC Field, Fort Washington, PA


I was at my son's soccer game when I notice this hawk fly into a nearby tree...
Well, forget the soccer game this was too close to pass up the photo op.
After a brief visit to the tree he perched on this pole, 
then flew off after being harassed by the paparazzi.

The blue sky makes a nice frame for Midweek Blues, 
don't you agree?

Heh, I agree - forget the soccer game, at least for a minute or two! This is fantastic. It looks like he's looking right at you!

Absolutely beautiful - the clarity is spectacular and that sky is a beautiful blue background!

Oh wow!
I live where there is always a hawk somewhere and have never got one this up close.
Awesome capture Rebecca!

I've never had the thumbnail pic not be there. I tried twice. Maybe it will show up. :)

Mine's on Carletta's Captures this week.

This is a fabulous shot - at first I thought it was a statue!

This is an amazing shot. I know from experience that hawks see every move a photographer makes. And to think it sat still long enough for you to its photo! :)

Spoken like a true blogger, and photographer. Never pass up a photo op.

Look at the face, the eyes, the detail of the feathers. It's a great shot against a deep blue sky.

Great capture! I think I'd skip the soccer too!
