As I was walking through High Park last week I notice a couple of people intently looking up through the trees. I was looking a for short cut back to my car so I headed in their direction. When I got closer I looked up and I could see a beautiful Red Tail Hawk with his back to us. Here was a moment when I wished I had my telephoto lens with me but I had use my iPhone and hope for the best.

I wanted to get a shot from the front but when I stepped on a twig and snapped it the hawk flew away. He didn’t go far so we followed him to the next tree, a couple of times. I tried to walk without making too much noise but it is almost impossible this time of year with all the debris that lies on the hard ground.

I knew that If I waited longed enough I might be able to get a shot of him taking off for the next tree.

It pays to be patient.
