One eye, both, and the other
Here is a slide presenting some deeply cropped images of a young Cooper’s Hawk, in a simple series collage.
Shot with the SX50, even at 1200mm they’re taken a bit too far off, with too little light and not enough shutter speed to maximize image quality. So, in the absence of photographic excellence we mount some smaller portraits together in hope to still illustrate a bit of this handsome bird’s character.
Hawks of every species are difficult for us to capture and somewhat rare sightings despite our well-populated songbird habitat. Our current Virtual Gallery features them.
