My Favorite Images / Hawk in Flight

 

One morning photographing in the Absaroka Range Wyoming, this hawk was soaring in the high winds and hunting field mice and pikas in the alpine meadows below. I had been photographing him for about 15 minutes when in a very brief moment he flew between the sun and I giving his body and wings the glow around it you see. It happened so fast that I was only able to get Six (6) images shot of this moment and it was not until I viewed the images on my computer that I saw he was looking directly at me.
