Red Shouldered Hawk

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.
