Red Shouldered Hawk in the cypress wetlands of florida

This is a picture of a red shouldered hawk taken in the big cypress national preserve in Florida near the everglades. This was the first time I was able to capture this magnificent raptor so up close and sitting down. It allowed me a rare close up shot for the first time. The overcast conditions allowed a picture without any harsh shadows or contrast
