Today I went to the Maine Audubon in Falmouth, Maine. The idea was to shoot some foliage. I started down over the hill towards the water with just my camera and my 18-55mm zoom on and my back pack and my 70-300mm zoom in the car. I got to the bottom of the hill and I saw a couple pointing up in a tree. There was the biggest Red Tail that I have ever seen. I took two quick shots which I figured with massive cropping I could get something to keep.
Quickly I changed my mind raced up the hill, changed lenses, sped down the hill to the tree and there as if waiting was the hawk. I grabbed several shots and then the hawk decided to take off. My camera was up to my eye and it was set for rapid shooting and I was able to get one in flight. Tomorrow I will post the foliage shots.
