This is a different hawk than I shared recently, but might have been the best hawk encounter I've ever had. I was walking Rosie and keeping my eyes open for a hawk to photograph, as I usually spot them in this particular area. I didn't see one in the sky, but I did notice one perched in a tall tree off in the distance. I made my way in that direction, knowing it would eventually take flight, and sure enough, about 10 minutes later, it did. What made this sighting so special is that it kept circling right over me, quite close to the ground for a minute or two! I ended up with a handful of shots that I'm really excited about. Once again, patience rewarded.
