A Red-breasted Hawk surveying the potential food below

[Jan. 5th, 2012 12:14:27 PM]

Lots of comments suggesting a closer crop. This is a 100% crop - the hawk wouldn't land closer - and any further crop would've caused pixel degradation.

I feel with the hawk sitting in the upper left, it may have been better to crop out some of the sticks/branches below and fill the frame with the hawk more.

I feel like a tighter crop could have really made this photo pop more.

Very beautiful bird, nice focus on it. I'd have perhaps cropped in a bit closer to the bird, as the surrounding bare branches aren't particularly interesting. Good capture overall.
