Redtail Portrait

This wild hawk (I presume a juvenile), was a very willing and nice model for me.

I like the portrait view. I think you could cut a small percentage off the top. It seems like there’s a little bit too much green in the blue background. But the bird is perfectly exposed with superb detail. It must have been very close. I agree that it is probably a juvenile or perhaps the same light redtail I saw.

Superb detail, and a lovely pose, Dan. I agree with David that you could lose a touch off the top.
