An Urban Red-tailed Hawk
Always have a camera with you — you miss 100% of the shots when you don't. This old rule of photography even applies to a nature photographer visiting a city.
This photo of a red-tailed hawk was taken in downtown Boston, near Faneuil Hall Market Place, surrounded by streets and buildings. It had just caught a pigeon, and was feeding in a potted shrub, seemingly oblivious to the crowd that gathered around it. I can think of few photo opportunities that have been more unexpected.
