  18. Nice portrait! When raptors (no matter how handsome) visit near bird feeders, it can be hard to let nature take its course. I remember than fro when we fed birds in Oregon!

    He’s a handsome fellow, sure enough! You must have fabulous zoom (or else he let you get a little closer than most hawks let me get).
