Peace & Traffic Abstract

I have a lot of bird pictures up so I've been trying to expand my subjects a bit. this is an ornament hanging from my rear view mirror on an abstracted background of traffic.
This is a resident red shouldered hawk. I've seen him as I drive by countless times. On the way out to do errands I had a very nice close view of him as I pulled up. As I was distracted for a second to address the radio I just missed him. His toes are in the edge of what is now a picture of a tree.
On the way home was in a good spot so I grabbed a few frames.
One of these days I'll get a closer one.
In between eagles and geese I took this shot on "assignment." It was on the other side of the lake. the small trees in the middle-ground are reforestation efforts. The bald eagle flew and sat in a tall tree just to left of the trees on the water.
I went to Little Seneca Lake with a friend this morning to take some pictures. After some photographing some geese and yellow finches we talked with a group of water foul enthusiasts who were doing a bird watch. Before they could finish telling us that there is a nesting pair in the area, my friend spotted this one flying in.
This is my first bald eagle in the wild. See the making of here.
