This hawk took flight from the rooftop of my home, I’m in a good area where hawks regularly frequent and have had three dive right at me.

I was able to get close enough to capture a wary look from this red-tailed hawk near home.
Image Info: 300 mm, 1/800 at f/6.3, ISO 200 – Canon T6, EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM.
I photographed this bald eagle late in the afternoon at Black Point Wildlife Drive, MINWR.
I first used a Canon 5D III with an attached EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS II USM. I then quickly moved the lense to a T6 with its crop factor advantage to capture this photo.
I was around 60 – 80 yards from the eagle and the photo is heavily cropped.
Interesting note, I used shutter priority set at 1/1250 with both cameras and both metered the same and the photos had the exact same lighting while using evaluative metering.
