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.
