Can You Find The Hawk In This Photo?

This photo was taken on the shore of the river near our condo development. There is a hawk in the photo just waiting for its next meal.

Can you find it?

I think I see it behind that stump of branch circled.

Yep, I saw it right away Andy.
I've always been fascinated by birds of prey, and I've been privileged to be up close and personal with them a number of times, including Falconing in the UK.

One afternoon I was reading on our front porch, and enjoying watching Red Tailed Hawks "making lazy circles in the sky" over our mountain, when one of them made a landing on the rail of the porch, not six feet from where I was sitting. I was awe struck, being as still as I could while he sat there looking at me for about a minute.

When he flew off, I realized he had been checking out a realistic looking bunny I had on the stair landing. It was one of those "moments" like in my signature.
