A Different Kind of Raptor

This Cooper's Hawk makes Freedom Park its home. Jim & I kept seeing him fly around watching for lunch to present itself. Most of the time he kept far enough away when he was flying where I didn't even try to get an image, but at one point he flew a few feet away from my head on his way to this shaded perch about 50 feet up in a tree.

I was going to keep this image private but my friend Tim, an avid birder, thought that it was a good shot, so here it is.

Canon 20D - 1/250th second, 300mm @ f/ 8, ISO 100
