The Lord of Leisure1 Photo Gallery
Lord of Leisure writes:
Animal (bird) photography is not my forte. It requires too much patience.
But, I do have a long lens and a bedroom window that affords a view of the woods behind our house. In addition, we also have bird feeders that the lovely and talented Hippie With Tiara keeps filled.
Consequently, raptors are regular winter visitors in our neck of the woods. I’ve captured shots of three hungry birds of prey that have come to keep an eye on the bird feeders in hopes of a meal.
Today’s exemplar is the Red-tailed Hawk, commonly seen perched along roadsides. These are not really bird hunters but they would be attracted to squirrels or other varmints that would hang out near the feeders.
- Lord of Leisure was previously known in these posts as Mr. Science. Both Lord of Leisure and Mr Science spend most of their time disguised as Neil Ellis, mild-mannered, retired teacher at a great suburban school system, who can identify a bird by its call, complete the New York Times Friday Crossword in ink, and snap a heck of a photo.
