It isn't every day that you can get a bird to pose perfectly for your camera. This handsome hawk didn't budge an inch when we drove next to it on the auto tour at the Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge.
I mean, we were RIGHT next to it, like maybe ten feet away! (Oops, I probably should have kept that to myself so you thought I was in a photo blind with some fancy schmancy camera!)
Even when I was poised to get some video of it flying off, it would not move. In fact, it continued to sit on its sign long after we finally drove away.
As awesome as this guy was, it kind of ruined it for all the other birds we saw that day because they were so flighty in comparison!
Thanks, buddy, for allowing us to get our best shots of the day with you!
