Red Tailed Female

I follow a pair of Red-Tailed Hawks around the city and have figured a good bit of their daily watching and hunting spots. This day in particular, I followed the female to a local park where she went from dead tree to dead tree, looking out over the sun-kissed rolling hillsides with a royal vantage point. This shot was one of many stunning captures of her fantastic form on this day.
