TUESDAY WAS A RAINY OVERCAST EVENING. HEADING TO THE STORE THERE THIS HAWK WAS IN FRONT OF ME. I ROLLED MY WINDOW DOWN THINKING HE WOULD FLY FOR SURE AND KNOWING I’D BE PUSHING THE LIMITS OF MY ZOOM LENS. THE BOTTOM PHOTO IS MY ORIGINAL AND THE TOP A CROPPED VERSION.

Carletta, Your photos are stunning! Love the hawk! Also your alstromeria and butterfly on a flower are just amazing. Nicely done!

What a great shot of this beautiful bird...

BJ Roan said...

Great capture!

Dimple said...

Nice shot, and good cropping! I'm glad you included the original, it gives an Idea of what can be done with the crop tool: Both shots are good, but the crop brings the hawk much closer.

Marci said...

Awesome photos!! Also love the apple photo below. Beautiful with the drops of water. Lovely color of green.

Pietro said...

Wonderful image, Carletta! The cloudy sky goes so well with the hawk.
