Pulled over today to photograph this beautiful Red-Shouldered Hawk sitting on a fence near the side of the road. Exquisite stripes on feathers, a reddish mist of color on his shoulders and an alert glint in his eye. A neighbor walking her dog told me that this hawk sits in her trees all the time. When he flew off, the soft feathers under his belly and near his legs were breathtakingly beautiful. A messenger from the Gods.
