I've tried to get a good shot of this Red-Tailed Hawk and its mate for a couple of years--but they were never in good range. Today, this one was sitting on top of a pole and amazingly didn't fly away when I neared. He sat on the pole for at least 45 minutes and seemed to be as interested in me, as I was of him.
