Early one foggy morning
We were there
Together for a moment
Of wonder

All the shots are good, Moria, but this one has that "extra".
If I were to try to put my finger on it I'd say that the more uniform background of this image enhances the mood just that wee bit more.

What a beautiful close up, an intimate meeting indeed. Was the hawk really sitting close to you? They are usually so shy and wary, seeing them nearby is always an experience. I like how stunningly red their tail still is, even in the foggy grey weather!

I do not have a telephoto lens, but I do have an optical zoom, I was within 6 feet of the hawk.  :D Twice - I like this the better of the two, because it feels more personal and the red tail as you pointed out. :D

What an excellent shot! You can really see why these hawks are called Redtailed Hawks.
