|details||A pair of Red-Tailed Hawks taken a few weeks ago while out shooting flowers in one of the public gardens here in Tulsa. On that particular morning, the quiet early morning was disturbed by some mockingbirds that had become very, very vocal. Mockingbirds are sassy, noisy birds, but the fuss they were creating was a quite a bit more noticeable than usual. I looked up and saw one of these hawks in the top of a very high cedar tree. I reached in my bag and got out the longest lens that I had with me which was a Canon EF 70-200mm and mounted it and kept my fingers crossed. I had popped off just a couple of shots when the hawk took flight. My heart fell as he went flying toward one of the other trees as I thought surely I had lost him. :( However, I kept watching him "just in case". My disappointment turned to excitement when I saw the first hawk land in the top of a tree next to another one who was perched there. I thought that this pair looked liked lovers who had just had a quarrel...so I used that as my title. ;) |
