Day 19

I came across this hawk today at the Prairie Ridge Ecostation in Raleigh. Beautiful bird. I think he would have like me to move on sooner. But I'm sure he found something to eat today... there were lots of mice and birds out in the sun today.

10 Other photos from the trip can be viewed in the Prairie Ridge gallery.

The Prairie Ridge ecostation is a wonderful place for watching birds.  Close to home and not usually crowded.  Not much activity at the bird blind, but I hope that picks up in the spring. 

Photo info: 400mm, tripod mounted, live view manual focus, remote switch == sharp.   Cropped and slightly sharpened. 

Lessons Learned: Photographically, no much learned.  5D III is proving to be sweet.  Paid for it today.  That wasn't too sweet.
