Adult Ferruginous Hawk Web
477 x 461 web sized. Thank goodness for watching the behavior of wildlife! The adult male was perched in the National Grasslands when we approached. Screamed at us and took off, well we followed where he went and come to find out the male had a female not far off. They both were babysitting their fledgling. I did take advantage of the situation until the adults showed clear signs of stress, they started dive bombing me to protect their youngster. If you ever felt talons on you, you understand it is not the most pleasant feeling. Guy was waiting for me with the dogs not to much of a hike off and we left the family alone. This is one of the shots I got. Feel free to download a free watermarked sample of this image to see what the unwatermarked purchased image will look like before making that choice!
