Not Everyone Gets to be the Astronaut


Hawk

Not everyone gets to be the astronaut, and in my case, not the professional photographer. I stalked this hawk for several minutes, trying to position myself close enough to get a decent shot, and not so close that I spook it before snapping at least a few frames.

Stealthily, I made way towards my quarry, angling myself for proper lighting. Just as the lens was pulling into focus, it leaped from its branch, leaving me with nothing but a shot of its ass.

This one got away, but there's always tomorrow....
