My Favorite Image / Merlin Hawk

I photographed this Merlin Hawk on driftwood on the beaches of Cape Hatteras National Seashore on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I was able to get close using my vehicle as a blind and working around it. He would fly between two of his favorite perches and I could drive my vehicle within few feet of him without scaring him off.
