He was all by himself and I tried to get closer . In moments like this ,I take what I call “Safety’s”.
I shoot from where I am,and continue towards the animal very slowly. If it takes off,I have 10% of something,rather than 100% of nothing.

A crow was harassing it and the Hawk took off. I tracked it as it went by.
It was heading straight for Franks nest and I thought that maybe there might be a fight? It settled into a tree below and Frank seemed cool with that!
