Description
This guy frequents my yard looking for snacks. I heard him in the pine tree behind my house and went to see what was going on. I think he was waiting to grab one of the Finches on the feeders. Suddenly he flew off and landed on my fence. I have never seen a hawk get so close to humans before. I slowly walked towards him not saying a word and barely breathing! I raised my camera and grabbed this shot. Surprisingly he just sat there... was not even bothered by me. I got to about 20 feet from him (I'm guess here) and we just kinda had this stare down... respecting each other's space. It was such an amazing moment. Then he flew off.
