I could have and would have missed this beautiful prince of the skies if it wasn’t for the kindness of a fellow bird-watcher who pointed him out to me. He’s a red-shouldered hawk and I discovered him in one of my favorite handouts of late, San Francisco’s Botanical Garden.
Oddly enough, I had to wait for the morning cloud cover to burn away before my camera could pick out real details. I don’t mind the wait; for me it was absolutely worth it.
For those of you who’ve lend me your ears and eyes by checking out some of my previous posts, you know I like to experiment with my shots. A graphic re imagining is never too far away and my new hawk friend didn’t have to wait long for me to re imagine his photo.
I’ve done several variations on this shot. This particular violet variation can also be found over at my FAA spot.
