These are some of my favorite photos...of course most are raptors. I just couldn't narrow it down to one, and didn't want to post 10 times. To all, let me know which one you like, I am interested to hear the choices. (click on photo to enlarge)

The Red-Shouldered Hawk ALL THE WAY. That picture is freaking awesome.

They are all pretty darn good photos! I have to agree with Tim on the Red-shouldered Hawk. Cool bird and great quality photo.

Jerry, no doubt that Red-shouldered Hawk photo is totally awesome and being a hawk fan it's hard for me to look beyond that photo and the other excellent hawk shots you have here. However, that right side Barn Owl photo is a work of art. There is an acute drama in the photo with the bird suspended while hunting for prey and that background, oh my, is simply beautiful.

Gotta go with the Coot. All those other glamorous birds would look great with a bag over their heads, but making a coot look good is pure artistry.
Love the feet of the Roughie, being able to read the molt on the Ferrug, seeing a PEFA rolled over and the colors of the barn owl above the seed heads. Where was the Red-shouldered from? Nice.

The Red-shouldered Hawk is from Bake Oven Knob, PA in 2003 (I went back East for a week long photography trip) with a Canon 10D and old 300 mm that lacked image stabilization. The camera was so slow, I only took the one frame. It is on the cover of "Hawks at a Distance"...funny, because the Red-tail on the cover of "Hawks From Every Angle" is with the 10D. That camera was slow and missed a lot, but I got those two shots. I like the Barn Owl and the Peregrine too. Peregrine was stooping at high speed, just got lucky to catch it in the frame and in focus.

Is that Roughie the one from Cache Valley?

The Rough-legged Hawk is from Farmington, that little hill on the refuge road with the education signs

Any chance this FEHA is the same one as FH 05 in Hawks From Every Angle?

So, where (in Utah valley) does one go to find beautiful birds like this?
