  • Description: "Coopers Hawk" launching from tree top. I was driving actually shooting the winter runoff in normally dry canyons in central AZ. I saw this guy in tree top, far off roadway, I passed by him and turned around on highway, parked vehicle, crossed the road with cam in hand, squatted down in bushes and took some still photos, as i slowly started to move towards him he launched, i had set Nikon D2X to focus tracking in case he did fly away, sure enough he launched and I tracked him as far as i could shooting about 30 frames as fast as cam will shoot. After returning home and looking through pics, I was pleased to find this one capture , my only regret was the distance and I only hd my 70-200mm with me...
