A Special Moment Captured in Time


This picture may seem a bit familiar, look up. Not only did it become the bases for a new blog header back in October of 2009 it is also the photo which I picked to grace the front of the 2010 calendar. The photo was taken at the Fall Raptor Center Release which was held at Carpenter Nature Center. I was very happy with my capture of the young red-tailed hawk. The detail that came out would have made for an excellent close up, but instead I choose to include more back ground in the pic. I think that the blue sky filled with clouds and gently swaying trees help transform this into a special moment captured in time. It is perfect for Sky Watch that falls on Earth Day and the three year anniversary of this blog.
