    Default Swainson's Hawk (methinks)

    In a field that was just freshly baled we saw a multitude of Swainson's Hawks sunbathing in the eveing sun. This is the closest I could get to one before he took off. Always wanted to shoot one sitting on a bale. This was eay here, since there must have been over 30 hanging around. I suppose a freshly cut and baled field makes for good eatin' ....

    The bale does make a nice perch. Nice and sharp and good control of light & shadow.
