20081119 079 Rough-legged Hawk SERIES.jpg


Three images. The first is a crop of the second, which itself is about about a 50% crop of the third, the original jpg image. The shot was hand-held. Note the blood on its beak. It must have just fed and was now preparing to sleep - if only that pest of a photographer would leave.

About 50% crop

Original jpg image.
