Hawk in Flight

I’d like to believe the hawks at Folwer Park have become so used to my camera that they knowingly cooperate in giving me photo opportunities. It seemed so during a recent visit. This one, a Red-Tailed Hawk, patiently sat as I approached and struck several perched poses that included a bit of scratching. Eventually, however, I got a little too close and it took off but the tiny but remarkable Nikon 1 V3 camera nailed a series of exposures of its exit.
