He was so far away that my telephoto hard a hard time capturing the details here so a little editing of colour and sharpness helped this photo along. I was captivated as this hawk circled the fields hunting for some lunch on the first sunny day we had in weeks.

Watching him ride the wind currents was incredible.  The dive was the most spectacular, of course, but it was so quick I didn’t have time to adjust to capture it on camera.  Some things in life are meant for your eyes to see alone, I suppose.
