Splendid image Tom. This photo's a study in the Red Tail's technique of flight.

Thank you all for your gracious comments. I was fortunate to find several hawks on the road I was traveling and they were very actively hunting. After a couple hundred shots I was able to get this one.

I appreciate your visits
