Driving by a neighbors flagpole, this hawk was perched on a champagne glass shaped light on top of the flagpole.

Hi Jo, good job of spotting the hawk in the neighborhood. As perches go this one isn't quite as appealing as all the other natural setting ones you have shown though. I like that you captured a catch-light in the eye and the hawk shows well against the blue sky. Areas for improvement are a sharper focus, less noise, and composition-wise, a little more space and especially not cut the tail. Nick

Hi Nick, Thank you for looking and taking the time for a critique. Noted on all things for improvement. (That flag flew up to block the clean tail shot.) lol..Of course I think the clear perch is a interesting study of the underside of his talons gripping a object.
