Red Tail Takeoff

How many times have you drove past hawks that were perched just off the road and you stop just in time for them to fly off and miss the shot? Me too...Sometimes though, you get just enough time to fire off a few frames.

Even your take off shots are wonderful! I love seeing the underside of their feathers!

Even your "few" frames are fantastic. Agreeing with Shelley, seeing the underside of their wings is very nice..a view I never seem to capture!! The next to last pic is my favorite. Wow!!

I have a fascination with flight shots and the detail in these pictures is INCREDIBLE. I love watching the tail movement in some of the shots and the way the wings move around. Well done, these are fantastic.

These are stunning and I love the underside of the bird, I never realized they were almost white.
