I spend a lot of time in the field not just photographing my subjects but observing them, learning about them and getting to know their behaviors and habits. In particular I enjoy photographing and watching recently fledged raptors developing their hunting skills because I find it fascinating. This juvenile Red-tailed Hawk was concentrating on some thing on the ground when I photographed it.
