Cooper's Hawk
Photo By Robert Strickland

  • Title: Cooper's Hawk
  • State/Province/Region: Florida
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Citrus county
  • Nearest Town: Beverly Hills
  • Description: As we all know it has been raining and raining, we got 3 inches yesterday and more today. This afternoon i went out to my shed blind during the last part of the rain. The birds grew active as the rain slowed and eventually stopped. I was watching the birds feed getting a few shot here and there when suddenly the backyard exploded as all the birds hi tailed for Tim buck two, As a Cooper hawk buzzed the backyard. he had done it before, always leaving, but this time he paid me a little visit. He came back into the yard and landed on the brush pile i have built up with my Mexican sunflower trimmings. I had the big lens on with the extender so he was to close to get a whole shot. I removed the extender and was able to capture him full body.

    Thanks Alena and David! I took a lot of shots of this landscape, but placing a person in the shot imparted the sense of amazement and exhilaration I was trying to capture. Merry Christmas!

    Exhilarating photo Laura! Being in the foreground gives the viewer the sense of how vast and spectacular our earth is. The image also allows for the outdoor photographer to reflect back on times...
