Royal Ferruginous Hawk surverying its kingdom

Ferruginous Hawk surveying its kingdom – Nikon D300, f6.3, 1/2500, ISO 640, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4x TC at 400mm, natural light, not baited

Ferruginous Hawks fascinate me, they are large, handsome and regal raptors. This one just appears to me to be surveying its kingdom from the top of a ranch gate in the Centennial Valley.

I hope to have more opportunities with Ferruginous Hawks in the near future.
