Smooth Landing

I had just stepped out to the back porch to photograph some hummingbirds when this adult Cooper's Hawk landed on a dead cholla branch.
At first it did not pay any attention to me and was checking something out on the ground but he finally turned to look me over as well.

Nice bokeh in these, Jim. That bottom shot made me lol.

Fabulous series of shots showing the splendid feather patterns and colours of this Cooper's Hawk. V.
