Front Porch Visitor

This Red Shouldered Hawk landed on my front porch rail and was kind enough to sit for a portrait. I see him around my front yard pretty regularly, but this was the first time he let me get close (about 8 feet) to snap a picture with my SX50.

Gorgeous birdy, just as gorgeous color photograph..lovely light where that green wash background at head level drops to deeper green below the neck and a bit of a suggestion of magenta in the feathers interacting with the green...

lovely.

I wish some of those would frequent my neighborhood. I often see rats making the rounds along the top 2x4 of my fence.

I got some decent shots when a Cooper's Hawk perched on our fence last year, but none as good as that.
