Red Says "Hey!"
at Tussey Mountain
October 21, 2006


This particular red-tailed hawk was effortlessly soaring along and perhaps heard the click of the camera's shutter button. Perhaps. Anyway, the following three photos were taken in rapid succession (that is, within a couple of seconds of each other).

"Hey! You lookin' at me?"

"Yeah. Another photographer."

And he sailed along the Tussey Mountain ridge without another look back.

Photo note: I used a Pentax *ist D, with the SMC reflex 1000mm lens.
